Comments on the House of Lords ruling in Friend v Lord Advocate on whether the restrictions on hunting in the Protection of Wild Mammals ( Scotland ) Act 2002 breached the applicant’s rights under the European Convention on Human Rights 1950. Considers whether the applicant’s right to hunt was comparable to religious beliefs and whether hunters were an ethnic group whose customs and practices were entitled to protection.
