Livingston MP, Graeme Morrice, has been awarded ‘MP of the month’ by the world’s leading organisation campaigning to end all animal experiments.
The British Union for the Abolition of Vivisection (BUAV), has awarded Mr Morrice with the honour, which recognises MPs who have been particularly supportive on animal protection issues.
Mr Morrice has been a long-time animal welfare advocate, pushing for change on a variety of issues, including live animal exports, testing and hunting.
Of particular prominence is the Livingston MP’s strong commitment to the BUAV’s campaign to end all animal experiments, an issue which he has raised in Parliament recently.
Commenting on the announcement, Mr Morrice said:
“I am delighted and honoured to receive this accolade from the BUAV which recognises my long standing commitment to animal protection.
“On a daily basis I receive correspondence from my constituents concerned about animal welfare issues.
“I am determined to give my constituents a voice which is why I have been pressing the Government to take action to ensure animals are protected”.
