Sir Paul McCartney has appealed to the British government to ban fox hunting.
The former Beatle is an animal activist and is angered that the bill has failed to pass through government on several occasions.
In a letter to Prime Minister Tony Blair, the musician called for a free vote in the House of Commons on the controversial "sport" as soon as possible.
The letter says, "Your government has promised to give the House of Commons an early opportunity to express its view, to have a free vote and to enable Parliament to reach a conclusion on the issue. The time to do this has now come.
"We want to live in a country where it is illegal to inflict pain and suffering by hunting wild animals with dogs – an activity that we along with most British people believe is cruel, unnecessary, unacceptable and outdated."
