The Countryside Alliance is a British group lobbying on behalf of what it calls country sports (mainly fox hunting). It was formed in 1998 from a merger of the British Field Sports Society, the Countryside Business Group and the Countryside Movement.
It announced on 22 July 2005 that its new chair would be inner-London Labour MP Kate Hoey - the Alliance has been traditionally seen as a Conservative leaning organisation.
