Early Day Motions Signed by Caroline Lucas

Early day motions (EDMs) are formal motions submitted for debate in the House of Commons, however, very few are debated.  Instead, they are also used for reasons such as publicising the views of individual MPs, drawing attention to specific events or campaigns and to demonstrate the extent of parliamentary support for a particular cause or point of view.

Caroline Lucas, the Green Party leader and the UK’s first Green MP (Brighton Pavilion constituency), has already signed EDM 110 (Trident and the strategic defence and security review) and submitted EDM 118 (Trafigura and shipping hazardous waste to the Ivory Coast).

On 28th May, the Independent published an article about Caroline Lucas keeping the spotlight on Trafigura.

I have written to my MP, Mark Reckless (Conservative), asking him to sign the EDMs.
