Lord Mancroft has allegedly asked hunt masters to campaign for pro-hunting Tories in marginal seats.
LEAKED emails suggest fox hunters are secretly plotting to gather support for Theresa May in the general election amid hope this is their chance to repeal the banned sport.
Lord Mancroft, chairman of the Council of Hunting Associations, has allegedly asked hunt masters to campaign for pro-hunting Tories in marginal seats so that they can reverse the ban brought in 12 years ago.
In a leaked message seen by the Mirror, the Tory peer wrote: “This is the chance we have been waiting for.
“A majority of 50 or more would give us a real opportunity for repeal of the Hunting Act.
“This is by far the best opportunity we have had since the ban, and is probably the best we are likely to get in the foreseeable future.”
