That this House is concerned at reports that illegal hunting continues to take place on National Trust land under the guise of trail hunting; notes the evidence of unopposed trespassing of staghound packs on National Trust land to engage in stag hunting; is further concerned by the potential disturbance to wildlife and damage to protected ecosystems that can be caused by these activities and the exercising of packs of hounds on National Trust land; and calls on the National Trust to cease issuing licences for trail hunting, exempt hunting and hunting hounds, exercise, and to properly enforce its ban on stag hunting.
