On 6th July 2015 Barry joined Brian May and a number of his colleagues in the House of Commons to show their support for Team Fox and to keep the Hunting Ban from being repealed.
Barry and Brian May, well known animal welfare activist and Queen guitarist, met to discuss the Conservative plan to make changes to the Hunting Act. The pair have pledged to work together to battle for animal welfare and keep the ban on hunting in place during this parliament.
The Hunting Act, which came into force in 2005, bans the hunting of wild mammals including foxes, deer and hares with dogs. It has proved to be the most successful wildlife legislation passed by Parliament, with over 400 prosecutions to date.
