Hunting vote delayed after SNP U-turn
14 July 2015
From the section UK Politics
A vote on relaxing the Hunting Act has been postponed after the SNP said it would oppose the changes.
The SNP’s intervention meant the reforms, which would only apply in England and Wales, were unlikely to win a Commons majority.
MPs were due to consider the change with a free vote on Wednesday.
BBC assistant political editor Norman Smith said changes restricting Scottish MPs’ voting rights on non-Scottish issues could now be introduced first.
