For the purpose of delivering petitions, Joe Rukin has agreed to act as the agent for anyone who gets a petition to him by noon on Thursday 22nd May. If you want Joe to act as your agent, you will have to complete the form authorising him to do so, as well as provide your petition, the cover sheet and the £20 and get it to 2 Caesar Road, Kenilworth, CV8 1DL by midday on Thursday.
We have a range of articles and advice on our website http://stophs2.org/toolbox
If you are expect to be affected by the operation or construction of HS2, you have the right to petition Parliament about it. We know about people who live a considerable distance from the route who are petitioning.
Given that even supporters of HS2, like Birmingham City council and Centro are petitioning and complaining about slow information from HS2 Ltd, we’d really encourage everyone affected to petition.
