They backed the option of an outright ban on hunting with hounds, after earlier rejecting two alternatives - self-regulation, or a hunt licensing scheme.

Even if the foot-and-mouth outbreak forces the Government to delay until the autumn, it is still unlikely the Bill will become law. The key battle is now taking place within the Labour Party over whether to include a fresh pledge on foxhunting in the election manifesto.

Paul Mitchell, residents' group Fulham Alliance spokesman, said the group would be calling on Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott to launch a public inquiry. …
