Corruption, COP26 and the Policing Bill 

It’s been a busy week with Jenny covering all the amendments to the Police and Crime Bill while Natalie is at COP26.

Jenny had long days starting at her usual 5am, speaking up to seven times a day in the House and finishing late (11:30pm on Wednesday). The Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill has over 350 amendments that our green peers have to take a view on - with lots being promoted by NGOs and campaigners - and the part time staff have to shift through them all to make sure nothing is missed.

Natalie has been busy with COP26 related interviews on Times RadioLBC and the Jeremy Kyle Show, along with addressing the Northern Farming Conference about food standards, trade deals and climate change. She also wrote an article on COP26. Today she will join the Climate Justice march. This outward facing work by our Green Party peers is made easier by having part time staff helping them to promote the work they do.

Despite working flat out in the Lords on issues like the triple lock for pensioners, Jenny still made time to speak at the Liberation Movement public meeting organised by Grassroots Black Left and to meet Fergal Sharkey to discuss MPs voting on the Lords amendment on sewage.

Greens in the room make a difference - 39,000 people saw the video of Jenny's directly challenging the government in the Lords on corruption and the awarding of government contracts.

Jenny and Natalie have a small, part time team who are paid for by the Green Party, but the budget doesn't stretch far enough to cover all the hours they need from them.

Jenny and Natalie need support 

Working full time in the in the second chamber Jenny and Natalie both work closely with NGOs and Green Party members to amend Government legislation and write their own bills. They meet with Ministers, question the Government, initiate debates, take part in All Party Parliamentary Groups, and host visits and events.

 Staff help comb through vast amounts of complex Bills and give them the detailed information they need to contribute to debates and propose amendments.

 Staff help them to respond to the huge number of messages, emails and letters they get from the public on issues such as the Assisted Dying Bill and the 6pm Curfew

 Staff help them to table written questions on behalf of campaign groups and Green Party members.
 

They are two of only three Green voices in Parliament at this critical time for our planet, please show your support for their work by donating now.
