This refers to the 2011 Lobby Day: for the 2013 Lobby Day please see http://stophs2.org/lobbyday
Next Monday’s Lobby Day will be from 4.30pm to 6.30pm in the Grand Committee Room.
Jerry Marshall, from Agahst says
“Lobby days are opportunities to meet your MP in Westminster to lobby them. In this case, we aim to inform off route MPs on the case against HS2. We will especially be putting the case that the Government should not make a decision until it has done what the TSC has asked – like re-calculate the business case with a lower value of time and adding environmental costs, and properly investigate at the alternatives.”
It will start with a presentation lasting around 25 mins followed by plenty of time for Q & A and one to one discussions.
Seb Berry, the Independent Stop HS2 councillor for Great Missenden pointed out
“You don’t need a ticket or anything else to turn up on the day and say you want to talk to your MP as part of the HS2 lobby day. We all have the right to turn up at Parliament anytime and ask to see our MP. A little known democratic right.”
Andrea Leadson, MP, is chairing the event. The speakers are Geoffrey Robinson MP, Steve Rodrick, and Jerry Marshall.
