Club Members raised a cheer at our March meeting for  Mr Robert Syms, a Poole MP, when Sylvia Fox reported that following some lobbying, he had voted for a Bill to ensure the UK Government Ratifies the Istanbul Convention. The Bill , Preventing and Combating Violence Against Women and Domestic Violence had its third reading in the House of Commons on 24th February and had successfully passed to the House of Lords.We heard that Mr Syms was the only local MP who had voted for the Bill. As our membership is widely spread we are able to write to several different MPs and liaise with SI Poole on subjects close to our hearts.We continue to monitor the passage of this important legislation through our Parliament.
