Urgent help needed RE Agriculture Bill

E-mail sent by Member 182c56c, Thursday, 20th February 2020 @ 5:14pm


Good morning all,

I am hoping that you might be able to help push this Blog round key clubs for me? We are currently trying to influence the Agriculture Bill, opportunities like this are very rare and time is of the essence!

The Blog piece we posted yesterday should explain all - and provides a template letter.

Priority is clubs/paddlers within the constituencies of MP's on the 'Scrutiny Committee'. We only have a week or two for this to have any impact.

Second we need to encourage all clubs to write to their MP asking them to support for the Gareth Thomas MP Amendment. This is to be tabled on the 10th, but still we need to be garnering MP support now.

I appreciate you are all very, very busy and bombarded with BC comms at present, but if you can spare a few mins to fire this blog off to key club / provider contacts, that would be great. I have put this on Facebook, as has BC, so any sharing or forwarding (thanks for your help on this Greg), would be greatly appreciated.

The more noise we can create about this the better!!!!

Thank you so much for your help! #StrongerTogether
