Briefing Parliamentarians over afternoon tea
The British Veterinary Association hosted an afternoon tea briefing for parliamentarians on Tuesday 4th November at the Houses of Parliament. The briefing, hosted by honorary associate of the BVA – Angela Smith MP, was well attended and a number of MPs and Peers came along to pick up the BVA Briefing packs and chat to BVA Officers and staff of the BVA.
The popularity of this event is reflected in the high levels of attendance. Animal health and welfare are both important subjects for the British public. If you are interested in any of the BVA briefs please contact them directly or visit the BVA website.
· MPs who attended: David Amess, Sir Roger Gale, Barry Gardiner, Simon Hart, Julie Hilling, Anne McIntosh, Andrew Miller, Neil Parish, Andrew Rosindell, Andrew Stephenson, Bill Wiggin, Roger Williams, plus Anne Marie Adams (Laurence Robertson’s researcher).
· Peers who attended: Lord Boswell, Lord Curry, Lord Higgins, Lord Trees (and Hannah Jordan – Parliamentary Veterinary Intern), Lord Wigley.
