Meetings and parliamentary engagements

  • This month this Alliance met with the Office of Sir David Amess, the Conservative MP for Southend West, and Chair of the Food and Health APPG. We introduced the Alliance and our campaigns, and Sir David’s office was supportive, offering to help us going forward. We will be sure to get his help tabling questions and writing to ministers.

  • The Alliance has been invited by Sir Eric Pickles, former Cabinet Minister, to join a Parliamentary Review, a forum of high profile businesses discussing policy with industry leaders and policy-makers. It is co-chaired by Lord Blunkett, and in recent years has featured forewords by Theresa May, David Cameron, Caroline Lucas, Lucy Powell and many other high-profile political figures.

  • We have drafted letters to send to Shadow Health Secretary, Jonathan Ashworth, and to the new Vice Chairs of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Dairy: Steve Double MP (St Austell and Newquay), Angela Smith MP (Penistone and Stocksbridge), Chris Davies MP (Brecon and Radnor) and David Simpson MP (Portadown) introducing the Alliance and requesting a meeting.
