Dear Minister Gormley,

I am writing to implore you to refuse a licence to the Ward Union hunt.

In its pre-election manifesto, the Green Party pledged to ban blood sports when in government. Please take the opportunity to fulfil this promise and end the suffering of these deer.

Thank you very much, Minister. I look forward to your reply.

Yours sincerely,
