I suggest that members should oppose amendments 7 and 51. We should oppose amendment 7, not just because Jamie McGrigor lodged it, but because it would have section 1A say that

"A person does not contravene section 1(1) by using a dog under control to stalk a wild mammal, or flush it from cover" if that is done for the protection of fish. I say to Jamie McGrigor that that does not make sense.
