The TPA at the Conservative Party Conference

In this, the middle of conference season, the TaxPayers’ Alliance has already made appearances at the UKIP Party Conference and the Labour Party Conference.  They will be stirring up the dust again this coming week with several speaking engagements at the Conservative Party Conference.  With this much on the schedule, it will be impossible to miss us.


TPA Chairman, Andrew Alum, will be chairing the TPA/Global Vision fringe event on Tuesday 30 September at 5:45 PM on the topic “What next for Britain and Europe?” with a well rounded panel ready for questions.  Other speakers at the event include Ruth Lea, the Director of Global Vision, Martin Boon, Director of ICM Research, constitutional lawyer, Martin Howe QC and Iain Martin, Head of Comment at the Daily Telegraph.


Keep an eye out for our Chief Executive, Matthew Elliott speaking at the Selsdon Group’s event “Freedom from High Taxes” on Tuesday 30 September at 10:00 AM.  You can also find him Tuesday evening at 7:00 PM speaking on the topic “What should be the priorities for a first term Conservative Treasury?” at an event co-hosted by the TPA, Policy Exchange and the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Whales.


TPA Policy Analyst, Matthew Sinclair will be making an appearance at British Shipping’s event “What are ‘food miles’ and what’s the problem?” also on Tuesday at 12:45 PM.


Mark Wallace, our Campaign Director, will be speaking at a debate entitled “From XL to X-tinct?  How should the Conservatives support international travel through Brown’s recession?”


If hearing them speak isn’t enough for you and you want to help out, you can volunteer to hand out leaflets and spread our message of lower taxes.  If you’re interested, meet Tim or Fiona McEvoy at our stand in the Freedom Zone at noon on Monday 29 September.


And if you’d like to meet John Redwood come by our meet and greet session on Tuesday in the Freedom Zone from 3 to 4, and meet the TPA founders, Matthew Elliott and Andrew Allum and Global Vision Director Ruth Lea between 4 and 5.


Live blogs will be continuing from Conference all week.
