To Members and Supporters of the Minorca Opencast Protest Group and to groups opposed to opencast mining and Climate change elsewhere in England especially.
Yesterday our M.P. Andrew Bridgen introduced his Private Members Bill for a 500 Metre Buffer Zone into the House of Commons. You now have your chance to comment on this proposal after reading the following news story in today’s Leicester Mercury:
“MP wants law to protect communities from mines” @
If you want some ideas as to why such a buffer zone policy is needed in England go here:
and read the two briefing notes on the subject.
Then if you live outside of N. W. Leicestershire start lobbying your own MP, Parish Councils and other representative bodies to support this Bill.
Those of us in Andrew’s constituency must each do the same.
If you also belong to any environmental or climate change group then get them to express support for the Bill.
Lastly you might like to let Andrew know what is going on in your area by contacting him via his email address @
