Labour plan to bring lynx to kielder is genuinely mad - do Northumberland County Council agree with their London MPs?

Why do labour politicians in London (in this case Hammersmith) want to bring back the Lynx to Kielder in our area? I would be curious if the local labour Northumberland county council agrees that the return of a wild cat that eats all the deer and lambs it can is a a good thing for our farmers, hikers, cyclists, tourists or locals. It is certainly not a good thing for the deer or the lambs.
The Q and A in the House of Commons has only just been noticed but labour MP Andy Slaughters parliamentary question is here:

My report in the Courant is here: http://hexham-courant.alfa-cloud.net/farming/MP-brands-lynx-introduction-bid-lunacy-5f8b71e4-3ecc-4c4a-b5b1-a6786bedd844-ds
I strongly oppose this crazy idea but have written to affected locals to get their feedback.

  1. Do you know if there are biology researcher who have a part in this project or is it just done purely by politicians? If so would you be able to talk to one of those people about these concerns? There might be something that these people know that we don't and the variables of our county may have already been factored in. If its done correctly then I'm sure a predator and prey ratio has been figured out and a controlled reasonable number will be released. If it's done completely blindly then I would maybe agree that its an awful idea that needs a more careful look but genuinely mad? I don't know if I would go that far.
