    Default Ask local MP to support the motion to delay the Loan Charge

    As I'm sure a lot of you are aware, there is a debate in the main chamber tomorrow on the introduction of the Loan Charge. I'm led to believe it's going to be the first of the day. Has anyone emailed/phoned their MP to ask them to support the motion to delay the Loan Charge?

    I read through the transcript, and although the debate is strongly anti-LoanCharge, I wasn't sure what to make of the fact that the debate just stops. No discussion of actions or next steps. So I'm not sure what was gained? Lots of MPs that were already anti-LC, discussing how bad the LC is.

    Unfortunately the leak suspended it, am I right in thinking Mel Stride was planning on making a response in the commons?

    I watched the debate live - it stops because the roof of the chamber started leaking. Looks like Mel Stride wriggled off the hook again
    Rule Number 1 - Assuming that you have a valid contract in place always try to get your poo onto your timesheet, provided that the timesheet is valid for your current contract and covers the period of time that you are billing for.

    I preferred version 1!

    I think that's the norm - he sits there and listens to the debate and then puts his point of view forward. The MP's can raise questions during this. But he didn't have to because of the dodgy roof

    So does the debate get unsuspended after they fix the leak then? Or is it just tough luck, and on to the next topic?

    Continues next Thursday 3pm. Not the best time slot but nothing we can do.

    Please contact any supportive mps and get them to attend.
