BOLTON North East MP David Crausby has given his backing to Vote Cruelty Free, a non-partisan coalition of animal protection organisations.

A Vote Cruelty Free spokesman said: “It is fantastic that David Crausby has shown he believes in animal protection issues as much as his constituents in Bolton North East.”

Mr Crausby said: “I think the Vote Cruelty Free coalition is a fantastic initiative and will hopefully allow us to move animal welfare issues further up the political agenda.”
