Email to Karen Buck, Westminster North MP
I emailed Karen Buck MP on behalf of the LCC Westminster group to ask her to sign Early Day Motion 407 'Victims of Road Accidents' (http://www.parliament.uk/edm/2012-13/407). One of her colleagues replied that Ms Buck is not able to sign Early Day Motions because she is a front bench spokesperson, however the following day I received an email from Ms Buck saying that "I wasn’t aware of a Westminster branch of the London cycling group and would certainly like to work with you on cycling issues." So that's positive.
I am considering replying to explain that LCC consists of borough groups plus some central committees, then explaining the issues we are campaigning about in Westminster North. Does anyone have any suggestions? The crossing of Harrow Road at Hermitage Street? Paddington Station cycle parking? Obviously Ms Buck is an MP, and is not a Westminster City councillor, nor a GLA member, so I need to think what issues are worth highlighting to her.
