Allotments - ask your MP to sign Early Day Motion

Dear fellow Transitioners

I'm sure you're all aware that there is significant unmet demand for
allotments in the UK. We did a survey of allotment waiting lists in England
earlier this year,
(http://www.transitiontownwestkirby.org.uk/files/ttwk_nsalg_survey_2010.pdf)
and you can access figures for your local council on our database.

Bob Russell, MP, has submitted for an Early Day Motion (EDM 687) for debate
stating "That this House welcomes the big increase in home-grown vegetables,
with seed sales up 14 per cent last year; is pleased that the number of
people wanting an allotment has increased by 20 per cent in the past 12
months; is concerned that according to the National Society for Allotment and
Leisure Gardeners there are 100,000 people on waiting lists for an allotment;
and calls on the Government, local authorities, other public bodies and
private landlords to make land available for new allotments." To-date 28 MPs
have signed the Motion.

I'm wondering if Transition groups around the England would consider checking
(http://edmi.parliament.uk/EDMi/EDMDetails.aspx?EDMID=41647&SESSION=905) if
their MP has signed the motion and if they have have, thank them for their
support and offer to meet with them to discuss the situation in their
constituency and if they haven't, to seek their support.

Best wishes,
Margaret
