LDN needs your help!

We LDN advocates need your help. Do you remember the petition we sought signatures for? Well, it was handed in to 10 Downing Street back in December, with 13028 signatures. Now that the new government has settled in it is a good time to take the petition to the House of Commons. Originally Stephen Crabb (Tory) was going to do this but he is now a Tory party whip and can no longer do so, though he is still very supportive. Nia Griffiths (Labour) has kindly taken over this task. As this is a cross-party issue we need as many MPs as possible to support Nia. MPs almost always only respond to their own constituents. So please, will you write to your MP and ask him/her to support Nia, LDN and therefore us. We have prepared a template letter which includes the wording for the petition – if you wish to use this letter please contact me at and I will send you a copy.
Thank you all for your help. I know many of you are already taking LDN and feeling the benefit. Please help to make the wider population and the government aware and push them into action.
