It would be much simpler to impose an outright ban on all hunting with hounds than to try to twiddle with the Hunting Act to allow trail hunting to continue but making it more difficult for illegal hunting to take place.
Now the determination by the Hunting Office to circumvent the Hunting Act has been laid bare, anything could happen.
Bloodhounds (hunting the clean boot) would IMHO be the safest version, as it’s the most easy to police. But who knows.
