PUBLIC SECTOR: Henson picks Countryside Alliance team

The Countryside Alliance’s new communications director Nigel Henson is putting the finishing touches to his newly reinforced press team in time for his offensive against the proposed fox-hunting ban. The Prime Minister plans to add a ban on fox-hunting to the legislation mapped out in the Queen’s speech this November. Henson has decided not to fill the role of chief press officer as previously planned. Press officer Paul Latham has been promoted to the role of senior press officer and another PRO will be drafted in by the end of next week.

time for his offensive against the proposed fox-hunting ban. The Prime

Minister plans to add a ban on fox-hunting to the legislation mapped out

Although fox-hunting is one of the higher profile causes championed by

the Countryside Alliance, the group also represents other country

sports.



Henson’s campaign plans include a season of regional marches and

demonstrations.
