Early Day Motion 197
The forever excellent John McDonnell MP has supported us once again and raised an EDM (number 197) about the Westminster Abbey Protest last Saturday
WESTMINSTER ABBEY DISABILITIES PROTEST
“That this House congratulates Disabled People Against the Cuts (DPAC) and ILF Fight Back and Occupy London for their protest on 28 June 2014 occupying the grounds of Westminster Abbey and calling on the Government to halt its plans to abolish the Independent Living Fund in view of the impact this would have in undermining the potential of disabled people living independent and full lives within the community; regrets the refusal of the Dean of Westminster Abbey to even talk to the disabled protesters; but lends its support to DPAC and ILF Fightback’s ongoing campaign to save the Independent Living Fund.”
You can view EDM197 here.
Remember that EDMs are usually only signed by backbench MPs and not ministers, shadow ministers and parliamentary private secretaries.
