CCA Welcomes UK Ivory Ban Consultation

CCA is pleased to welcomes the decision of the UK Government to open  consultation on a total ban of Ivory Sales in the UK. CCA has been campaigning on this issue for a long time and has recently had numerous articles published in the Catholic press and elsewhere on the subject.

We are particularly pleased at the role that CCA Patron Sir David Amess MP (pictured above) has played in securing this consultation and we know that he has been pressuring the Government on this issue including signing a letter from many senior Conservative MP’S to the Prime Minister only last week which seems to have been crucial in securing the consultation which has just been announced by DEFRA.

CCA will be watching the consultation process with great interest and only a total UK ban on Ivory sales as part of a larger worldwide ban will stop the massacre of Elephants in the wild for their tusks.
