In the last week there has been a lot of discussion about the principles of the #LBBill. Some related to Stephanie Bincliffe’s inquest, some to the Bubb report, and yet more to the brilliant article that Saba Salman wrote for the Guardian, published online and in print last Wednesday.
The conversations continue as we speak with an open discussion in Manchester, organised by Eve Holt and PSG Speak Up
As well as the discussions, which are crucial to developing the next draft of the Bill, we are also getting more pledges.
We now have over 800 pledges of support for the #LBBill, 780 are from individuals, 31 from organisations and 1 from a Parliamentary Candidate.
We will be following up with others that we have spoken to recently, including the Minister Norman Lamb, to try and get them to publicly pledge their support. The Minister has done this on a number of occasions, including on BBC Radio Oxford, and when we met, so we’re hoping he’ll pledge.
We have also had some interest from the Labour Party via Andy Sawford, MP which we are actively pursuing.
Please keep pledging and keep sharing the campaign. You can see all those who have pledged their support on the page here.
Thanks again for the support, let’s make #LBBill happen. To pledge takes 60 seconds, click here, complete the form and then confirm when they email you. Thanks.
