Sharon has welcomed a national petitions campaign by WASPI which will then be handed into Parliament on mass by Members of Parliament on the floor of the House of Commons at the end of the day’s business on the 11th October 2016 and is calling on WASPI women and their families to collect as many signatures as possible over the summer.
As part of this petitions campaign, Sharon has written to the many women who have written in to her over the years on this matter and asked them to go out and collect as many signatures as possible so she can hand them in with fellow MPs in October.
Sharon is asking that these signed petitions sheets (please find links below) are sent to her Parliamentary Office no later than 7th October to be collated and put together so they can be presented in one go to Parliament – signatures handed in after the petition has been submitted will not be able to be handed in, as it will have then closed.
“The WASPI campaign’s momentum has been fantastic over the last year and has gained some real traction amongst Parliamentarians, and we cannot let this fight fall by the wayside. That is why I am fully behind this petitions campaign and hope as many WASPI women, along with their friends and family, will be able to collect as many signatures as possible so that come the 11th October, I can stand in Parliament and present the petitions and ensure the Government hears the voice of my constituents, especially those women who have been the most affected by these changes.’
