With reference to:
https://publications.parliament.uk/pa/cm...

https://data.gov.uk/dataset/695f6775-3e5...
and
https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk...

In response to a recent FOI request, I received the following information:
''Although there are defined Home Office codes for recording instances of Lamping, Hare
Coursing and so on, no codes currently exist under which it is possible to record specific
instances of either Cubbing or Trail Hunting. '

On a document I was further directed to read
https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk...
there is no mention of the Hunting Act although the Wildlife Act is listed.

My questions are:

1. Is the Hunting Act designated as legislation where crimes (such as cubbing, or instances where Trail Hunting turns into foxhunting and a wild mammal is killed) committed in breach of the Hunting Act are deemed recordable?

2. If so, why are there no codes for police forces to use when specifically recording reported incidents of cubbing and foxhunting just as they record lamping or hare coursing?

3. If the Hunting Act is not deemed recordable legislation what is the reason, given that hare coursing is a recordable offence?
