Advocacy - Tea Time For Change

Director Peter Hudson travelled to London to take part in Tea Time For Change a Westminster lobby for international development organised by Actionaid, Cafod, Oxfam and others. One hundred and thirty MPs were asked to attend by their constituents who lobbied them individually on issues concerning tax dodging by multinational companies in developing countries, keeping to the 0.7 promise of Development Aid by the British Government by 2013, and the Robin Hood Tax. Peter invited Rt Hon Bill Wiggin, MP North Herefordshire, with whom over a cup of tea in Westminster Hall he had a long and free-ranging chat and a commitment on at least two of the issues. Various other advocacy campaigns have been joined over the year including participation in another Climate Rally in London in December.
