MPs point scores and statistics

Election 2005

15 EDMs were presented to MPs between August 2002 and January 2005 which were animal welfare related. MPs earned a point for each EDM they signed, with a bonus point for the MP who actually tabled the motion.

Topping Animal Aid's league table of individual MPs was Liberal Democrat Mike Hancock, followed by Labour's David Drew - with Tony Banks, Bill Etherington and Dr Rudi Vis in joint third place. Liberal Democrat Norman Baker also deserves a special mention by tabling three of the 15 EDMs.

Although the tories had an extremely poor overall record, three members of the party stood out as showing a commitment to animal welfare - Anne Widdecome, Andrew Rosindell and Peter Bottomley.
