David Cameron has been forced to back down on reversing the hunting ban
In an early demonstration of their waver thin majority, the government has back-pedaled on its plans to hold a vote on relaxing the fox hunting act this week after it became clear to David Cameron that he would lose the vote.
The vote, which was due to have taken place on Wednesday 14th July, was pushed back following fierce opposition from the Labour Party and anti-hunt campaigners. It also became clear to Cameron that the SNP would vote against the bill ensuring that it did not pass.
In a victory for anti-hunt campaigners the Conservatives backed down on the proposed vote which would have relaxed the law on hunting foxes with hounds
The government has also had to postpone votes on English Votes for English Laws (EVEL) and the Human Rights Act.
