Pressure grows for circus ban on wild animals
"MPs from all sides are to demand that the Prime Minister, David Cameron, drop his opposition to a ban on wild animals in circuses in what promises to be a highly charged debate in Parliament next week.
"The Labour MP Rob Flello has secured a 90-minute adjournment hearing in Westminster Hall next Wednesday at which dozens of Tory, Liberal Democrat and Labour MPs are expected to join forces to put pressure on the Government to reverse its position.
"Moves are also afoot to hold a longer debate with a vote in the main Commons chamber - which could cause substantial embarrassment to ministers, given that hundreds of backbenchers have expressed support for a ban."
