Early Day Motions

Early Day Motions (EDMs) are something that I regularly get asked to sign. EDMs however are in my opinion, ineffective and as they cost over £1,000,000 a year to run, and from now on I will not be signing any EDMs at all, however much I may sympathise with the content. This position has been taken by many Members of Parliament and will only change if EDMs are given some bite and purpose. Therefore, if you are a constituent of the Cotswolds and would like me to sign an EDM, I will always decline as a matter of course. Instead of signing an EDM, I will lobby Ministerial colleagues and influence policy in more effective and cheaper ways.

More information on EDMs can be found here: http://www.parliament.uk/about/how/business/edms/
