Pro-hunting groups have called for a ban on hunting with dogs to be overturned ahead of one of the busiest days of the hunting calendar.
A quarter of a million people were expected to take part in Boxing Day hunts on Monday. Some ministers have said the Hunting Act does not work.
Prime Minister David Cameron has promised to hold a free vote on the issue in Parliament.
