Save our Schools lobby of Parliament

Joint Education Unions' "Save our Schools" Lobby of Parliament - Monday 19 July 2010


The NUT and the other education unions have organised an urgent rally and lobby of Parliament on Monday 19 July 2010. The lobby follows the announcement of cuts to the Building Schools for the Future programme and is also timed to coincide with the Second Reading of the Academies Bill in the House of Commons on that day.

The rally will take place at Westminster Central Hall, Storey's Gate, London SW1H 9NH between 1 and 2 pm. Central Hall will be open from 11.30am to allow for registration, networking and any pre-meetings. A map showing the location of Central Hall can be found here. After the rally lobbyists will be able to lobby their MPs via the Green Card system from 2.30 pm when Parliament is sitting.

Anyone wishing to attend the lobby should contact us using the link on the left hand side.

If you are attending the lobby you are also advised to contact your MP in advance and seek to arrange a suitable time to meet with them on the day. You can email your MP via the NUT’s easy to use facility here. If you are unable to attend the lobby you may also use this facility to arrange a meeting with your MP in your constituency.

A briefing on how to get the most from the lobby, including questions to ask your MP, will be posted on the National  website shortly.

If you have not already done so please also email your MP about the Academies Bill here.
