Hundred of student officers descended on London for the national lobby for their opportunity to directly influence the decision makers in parliament. To have a maximum impact on Westminster for the education funding campaign we need you and your experiences of higher education.
The event was hosted by Paul Farrelly MP, Jon Cruddas MP and David Blunkett. Confirmed speakers for the day include David Blunkett, Charles Clarke and Paul Farrelly.
EDM 1085 Reaches 101 Signatories
A big thank you to all of you who have asked your MP to sign up to NUS' EDM 1085. 101 MPs have now signed up.
We need to demonstrate that this is an important and persistent issue and the EDM is one aspect of this. We also need to start refining who our allies and targets are for the next stage of the campaign, the EDM helps us do this too. We only have till Parliament breaks for the summer to gather as much information about MPs and their thoughts on higher education funding as possible. If you receive any feedback from your MP please share it with us.
Help us make the most of this time before the summer.
