Government plans to put forward a bill relaxing rules on fox hunting in England and Wales have been pulled after the SNP revealed the party's MP's would vote against the proposal.
The SNP's stance meant the bill, which would only apply in England and Wales, was unlikely to win a majority in the House of Commons.
Fox hunting is currently banned throughout Britain - but in Scotland an unlimited amount of dogs can be used by farmers or landowners to flush out foxes.
In England and Wales there is a limit of just two dogs and the Government had wanted to amend the law to bring it in line with Scotland.
