Bin the lobbying Bill in its current form
As your local Member of Parliament my postbag or mailbox is never less than substantial with constituents regularly contacting me about a whole host of issues that are concerning them – some local, some national and some international.
I guess I might reasonably expect the majority of them to fall into the ‘local’ category and, indeed plenty of them do, with people in and around Morpeth concerned about issues such as flooding, the controversial traffic lights at Telford Bridge, car parking and job prospects.
Perhaps surprisingly, therefore, one of my heaviest-ever postbags has concerned none of these but a controversial Bill currently going through the Parliamentary process.
