Stall delivers clear message to Jason McCartney

Energy Bill stall 9 Mar

We had a great stall on Saturday. Despite the poor weather, we collected 70 postcards (Energy Bill amendment postcard) and had lot of interest from the public. Thank you to those who joined us.

Campaigners deliver their call for Jason McCartney to support Tim Yeo's amendment

Campaigners deliver their call for Jason McCartney to support Tim Yeo’s amendment

We’ve pencilled in a date for our next stall which is Saturday 13th April – we’re waiting for a reply from Kirklees Council about permission for this.

On the national scale, Friends of the Earth have advised us that the vote on the amendment will not take place until after the Easter parliamentary recess- which allows us more campaigning time!

The pressure is steadily building as a result of developments like Tim Farron Lib Dem President speaking out for the amendment. http://www.guardian.co.uk/politics/2013/mar/03/liberal-democrats-rebellion-decarbonisation-targets-energy
