The Scottish Countryside Alliance has picked Media House

International to lobby against a Scottish parliamentary bill to outlaw

foxhunting.



The bill is the first private member’s bill to go before the new

parliament and is sponsored by Labour peer Lord Fraser. The Scottish

Countryside Alliance - the Scottish sister group to rural lobby the

Countryside Alliance believes gamekeepers and other members of the rural

community will lose their jobs if the bill is passed.



Media House will back its argument with the European Convention of Human

Rights, which enables legislation to be challenged in court if it costs

people their livelihood.



Media House International executive chairman Jack Irvine will lead the

account, alongside account director Tom Cassidy and public affairs

specialist David Lutton.



Cassidy said: ’This is the first major and controversial bill before the

Scottish Parliament and we are excited to be in the forefront of a

campaign to overturn it.’



Media House’s recent work includes crisis management in the aftermath of

the Bank of Scotland’s withdrawal from a joint venture in the US with

evangelist Pat Robertson.
