Climate Change Lobbying
On Friday 5 November 2010 Jackie Hoskins represented PAWS in joining with 5 others from West Reading, predominantly from church groups, in lobbying our MP, Alok Sharma on Climate Change issues. Amongst these issues was the Energy Bill currently going through Parliament, the Green Deal and the Green Investment Bank. They urged him to support them to ensure they were not weakened. Concern was expressed over helping the developing world dealing with Climate Change. The importance of getting a positive result from the Cancun meeting in Mexico was stressed. Alok was very positive and promised to look seriously at all these matters.
Jackie invited Alok to come to a PAWS event and he said that he would be delighted to do so.
