That is why we have the House of Lords. They have time to discuss matters which the House of Commons attempt to rush through.
On t.v. Ian Duncan Smith (leader of the opposition in the commons) made it clear that as Tony Blair is making time to try to ban hunting whilst there is insufficient time being spent on sorting out Teaching, Health & Law 'n' Order, it is only reasonable that if the Conservative party come back to power, time should be allowed to re-instate hunting.
Surely parliametary time can be better spent than to take a second go at hunting, when a large show of support for hunting has been seen.
