National Trust chief in vote row

By FWi staff

NATIONAL Trust chairman Charles Nunneley has been accused of using his casting votes to keep pro-hunting members off the trusts ruling council, reports The Times.

Eight barristers, backed by Robin Hanbury-Tenison, a former director of the Countryside Alliance, will make their complaints at the Trusts annual meeting in November.

The National Trust angered the pro-hunt lobby when it banned stag hunting on its land in 1997.
