The Scottish Countryside Alliance has picked Media House
International to lobby against a Scottish parliamentary bill to outlaw
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.
