A Welsh accountant has calculated the cost of compensation that must be paid if the government imposes a hunting ban at a minimum of £155m.

William Patterson, from Lampeter West Wales, conducted the analysis on behalf of the Countryside Alliance, the organisation opposed to the ban, the Daily Telegraph reported.

The alliance claims the compensation figure could be much higher if claims from businesses such as livery stables were eligible and if hotels demanded compensation for tourism losses from a cessation of hunting were factored in.

Simon Hart, the alliance’s chief executive, said: ‘If the government brings back the Bill to ban hunting, it will face a fierce battle, as well as this huge compensation bill. The sensible option would be to leave well alone.’
