The Countryside Alliance has launched a website to encourage people to register their support for the repeal of the Hunting Act.

Supporters can also air their comments on why the Act should be scrapped.

Countryside Alliance chief executive Simon Hart said: “The Alliance is giving everyone who believes in fairness and liberty the opportunity to register their opposition to the most pointless and illiberal piece of legislation the current government has passed.

“The political tide is changing and the repeal is becoming increasingly likely.”

More than 1,800 supporters had signed up during the website’s first day live.
