Our Lobbying Group is a small one. We communicate by email and use this method to sign petitions and write to our MPs and others on topics that interest us.The Club as a whole often signs e-petitions and in the past has done so to help ban Landmines and Cluster Bombs. We often do this through our partner organisations such as Handicap International. This past year we have signed many petitions, but our latest concern is the urgent need for the Government to Ratify the Istanbul Convention. MPs letters are being drafted to find out what is holding them back. We are gaining in confidence as we learn more about Parliamentary proeedures and the democratic process.
