Next Monday, 28th April, is the second reading and vote on the HS2 Phase 1 Hybrid Bill.
If you oppose HS2, it’s really important that you get in touch with your MP before the vote and tell them that you want them to vote against HS2.
If you are coming to the Stop HS2 demo on Monday, you could ask them to meet you at the demo, or any time before the vote (expected around 10pm). HS2AA have booked a room in the Houses of Parliament up until 8pm, so if you are there after the demo, you could ask them to meet you in there.
The easiest way of emailing your MP is the tool at http://www.highspeedrail.org.uk/. This will suggest a wording for you, with some of the many different reasons why HS2 is a bad project for the country.
Another option is to use https://www.writetothem.com/.
Alternatively you can look up all their contact details on the Parliament website – http://www.parliament.uk/mps-lords-and-offices/mps/. As well as email addresses and the address of their constituency office, it also gives your MP’s phone number.
Twitter can also be a good way of getting in touch with an MP – two thirds of MPs have twitter accounts. If you have been joining in on the Stop HS2 selfie campaign, you could ‘tweet’ your picture to them by including their twitter ID in your tweet.
PS It’s also worth getting in touch with the other prospective candidates for MP. They will pass your views to their national party, and add to the pressure on MPs that way.
