Secretary of Justice Robert Buckland seemed to rule out giving parliamentarians a free vote to overturn the fox hunting ban if conservatives won the majority in the general election.

Former Prime Minister Theresa May's controversial offer on the 2017 Tory manifesto fell rapidly after its poor election performance. Buckland told Sky News that he thought it unlikely that Boris Johnson would relive the controversial issue.

Foxhunting was banned through legislation introduced by the Blair government in 2004.

Buckland said:


I see no return to that. I think the schedule has changed. Now we are talking in our own policies about strong animal welfare measures. We are cracking down on issues like live shipping. We're dealing with trophy hunting, keeping primates as pets.

He added that he believes Johnson has an "authenticity" on environmental issues, which is an "important mark" of his leadership.
