FBHVC chairman delivers keynote address at Club Expo

5th March 2013. Two hundred delegates from vehicle clubs across the country crowded into Gaydon’s splendid conference facilities to hear FBHVC chairman, David Whale outline the Federation’s strategy for defending the right of historic vehicle owners in the UK to use the public roads.

The Federation has been a long standing supporter of Club Expo and it was encouraging to note that of the 200 delegates some 30% had not previously attended the seminar and exhibition.

Mr Whale explained the importance of clubs affiliating to the Federation for without that support it would not be possible to carry out lobbying activities in Westminster, Brussels and Strasbourg. He stressed that these activities were vital in the protection of its member’s rights and he outlined the most recent pieces of legislation on which the Federation had been consulted.

He also emphasized the importance of the other activities of FBHVC and pointed out the important role they played in supporting the lobbying programme.
