Click below to view a brief timeline of our campaign since it’s launch in January 2010:
Conservatives Against Fox Hunting hosted the first Westminster event with The League Against Cruel Sports in the House Of Commons with six anti repeal Conservative MPs attending the meeting. Brian May, the UK Director of IFAW and the CEO of The League Against Cruel Sports were Speakers in December 2010. The event was hosted by Minister Caroline Dinenage MP and chaired by the Co- Founder of Conservatives Against Fox Hunting.
We have since organised several parliamentary briefings in the House of Commons and at the Conservative party conferences with Conservative MP hosts.
We have been invited to meetings at No10 Downing Street to discuss animal welfare campaigns.
