Blair Told to Rethink Bill March 23, 2006

Posted by bill111 in Politics.

Lord Grocott, the government's cheif whip in the Lords has written to Tony Blair criticising the Bill outlining "the inadequacy of the existing safeguards on the face of the Bill." The letter was also sent to Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott and received support from Baroness Amos, the leader of the House of Lords.

Oliver Heald, who is leading opposition to the Bill in the Commons commented "one of the most senior figures in government agrees with the Conservatives that the powers in this Bill need to be reined in. The time has come for the Prime Minister to listen to this advice and change the Bill."

Many thanks to Jax for the heads up.

What can I do?

  • You can write to your MP, telling him/her you disapprove of the bill.
  • Tell your friends about the bill and this site.
  • Distribute leaflets around your school/college, place of work or even in your local town.

Save Parliament
