MAURICE KAY LJ:

[1]  On 3 December 2002, the Hunting Bill was laid before the House of Commons. During that session of Parliament it was passed by the House of Commons, but it did not find favour in the House of Lords. A Bill in identical terms to that passed by the House of Commons was reintroduced in the House of Commons on 9 September 2004. Once again, it was passed by the House of Commons but met with resistance in the House of Lords. This time it received a third reading in the House of Lords, but only in a significantly amended form. On 18 November 2004, the House of Commons rejected the proposed amendments. The Speaker issued a certificate pursuant to s 2 of the Parliament Act 1911 as amended by the Parliament Act 1949, whereupon the Bill received the Royal Assent later the same day. The Hunting Act 2004 is due to come into force on 18 February 2005.
