I have received several hundred emails from voters in the Monmouth constituency asking my views on a range of issues. By far the largest number of these have concerned fox hunting and the Conservative plans to overturn the ban and resume chasing defenceless animals and tearing them to death for fun.
Let me make this clear. If elected, I will fight for the ban to be strengthened not repealed. I will support measures to deter and prosecute animal cruelty and promote animal welfare. I will protect our wildlife.
The Green Party is the only party to have an Animal Manifesto – it can be downloaded here. If animal welfare is important to you, then your only choice is to vote Green.
