Our lobbying activity

To ensure the veterinary voice is heard around the UK, we provide briefings and information to parliamentarians and ministers in Westminster, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

We work closely with our honorary associate member MPs, MSPs, MSs and MLAs. We also work with the Federation of Veterinarians of Europe (FVE) to lobby the European Commission and Parliament.

We launched manifestos for the Senedd Cymru/Welsh Parliamentary election and
Scottish Parliamentary election in May 2021, to read our manifestos select either Wales or Scotland below.

You can also view our analysis of the main Scottish and Welsh political parties’ manifestos to explore what they say about animal health and welfare and identify where their manifesto pledges mirror ours.
