Information About Us

The purpose of the Conservative Foreign & Commonwealth Council is to provide a forum for the discussion of international relations to promote greater understanding and awareness.  We visit embassies and high commissions and host events in Parliament.

We are affiliated to the Conservative Party and tracked by the Bodleian Libraries web archiving programme .

Our highlight of the year is the Annual Diplomatic Party attended by close to 40 Ambassadors/High Commissioners every summer. During the year we invite prominent speakers and Heads of Mission to hear their view of foreign affairs and to discuss perspectives.

We are supported by notable Patrons and our President, Sir Ronald Halstead together with our Chairman, Rehman Chishti, not to mention our highly loyal members.  Our membership comprise members of the Conservative Party as well as All Party Groups;  members and their guests are welcomed.
