Make time to come and see your MP and have a chat over a cup of tea.
There’s nothing like a chat over tea to help people understand one another. But on 9 June, tea time is about more than just a cosy chat. It’s about making MPs understand how important it is to you that poor communities can receive healthcare and education and break free from poverty forever.
Let your MP know that effective aid, promised by the UK government, is vital now. But aid alone isn’t enough. They can ensure that more money gets to the poorest communities by:
- stopping companies tax dodging
- getting companies to open up their books on payments they make to developing countries
- supporting innovative ways of funding development like a tax on financial transactions (Robin Hood Tax)
