Arrest Of Duck Feeders

EDM number 1554 in 2001-02, proposed by Paul Flynn on 03/07/2002.

That this House notes the arrest by Dyfed-Powys Police of 12 ramblers caught in the act of feeding ducks and their subsequent imprisonment for five hours; notes the comment of the group's solicitor that the police are 'keen to arrest people if there is a fox hunt nearby' even when those concerned are not involved in any protest; is delighted that the ramblers have been compensated for wrongful arrest; and looks forward for similar diligence from the police in apprehending hunters when their activity becomes unlawful.

This motion has been signed by a total of 28 MPs.
