Wildlife Bill, 1997: First Stage.

I move: "That leave be given to introduce a Bill entitled an Act to amend and extend the Wildlife Act, 1976 to ban fox hunting."

Is this Bill opposed?

Question put and agreed to.

Since this is a Private Members' Bill the Second Stage must, under Standing Orders, be taken in Private Members' time.

I move: "That Second Stage be taken in Private Members' time."

Question put and agreed to.
