POA Lobby and Rally of Parliament 5th December 2017

Further to Branch Secretary Circulars 26/2017 and 29/2017, we would encourage members who are attending the rally to contact their MPs in advance of coming to Parliament to try and arrange meetings. Please find attached a briefing paper for members to send to their MP’s prior to the lobby. If members wish to green card lobby their MP please see attached guidance, which provides the information on how this is done in the House of Commons.

Timetable for the rally and lobby of Parliament;

12.45pm  Meet/assemble at Old Palace Yard which is opposite St Stephens Gate – for a possible photo opportunity.

12.50-1pm  Members head to Parliament if it’s a busy day this could take up to 30 minutes to get through security.

1.10-2pm Green Card lobby.

2pm   Rally starts in Committee Room 11.

Chair - Mark Fairhurst

Speakers - Richard Burgon, Liz Saville Roberts, Lord Ramsbotham and Steve Gillan.

Members can still continue their green card lobby after the rally should they wish.

For those who cannot attend the rally, the NEC would ask members to send the briefing paper to their MP and ask for a meeting at their local constituency surgery to discuss their concerns.

Please bring the contents of this Circular to the attention of all our members.

Thank you for your continued support and cooperation.

Yours sincerely

General Secretary
