We speak to David Bowles, RSPCA Head of Public Affairs, about some of the causes supported by the late Sir David Amess who was MP for Southend West and a consistent champion of animal welfare throughout his long career. Sir David Amess MP was tragically killed earlier this year, although his legacy lives on.

Talking Animal Law, produced by the UK Centre for Animal Law (A-LAW), features fortnightly discussions on topical issues and ethical theories about the treatment of animals with leading experts in the fields of law, ethics and science.
