  • Stop the closure of Marks and Spencer in Poole
    Marks and Spencer in Poole, the only food store in the Dolphin Centre, is due to close in January 2022. For many of the elderly population of Poole, Marks is not only essential but a life line. It is a vital link to outside world as they get a route one bus, get their shopping then go for a coffee - never more so than after lockdown. Many do not have a computer - they have become the forgotten generation in the world of commerce We need to support our elderly generation - Marks and Spencer is accessible for many, caters food wise, for example, smaller portions, a good selection of convenience food and clothes. It’s a lifeline, a daily outing, a reason to go out.

  • Have you been let down by Chronomics, the Covid-19 testing provider?
    In these difficult times, we must stand together and do everything we can to support the ongoing efforts to reduce the spread and the impact of coronavirus. This should include calling out and distancing ourselves from companies who do not take their responsibilities in this endeavour seriously.

  • British Gas to return furlough payments
    British Gas received £27m of government support during the Covid pandemic for employment retention. During their claim for tax payers to support furlough payments British Gas issued a fire and rehire notice which has resulted in over 1000 engineers leaving the company and up to 700 being dismissed by not signing new contracts on worse terms. It is morally wrong for British Gas to accept tax payers money while deciding to dismiss their engineer workforce. Sign this petition to support our request for British Gas to return tax payers money immediately.

  • Stop Barclays Bank closing their Brentford branch in June 2021
    The closure would be a devastating blow and it would leave our community with neither a bank nor a post office. The nearest Barclays branches, and branches of any other bank, would be at Ealing Broadway, Hounslow High Street, Chiswick High Road, and Richmond town centre. Many in our community, including the most vulnerable, have no access to online banking facilities and they would find it very difficult indeed to conduct their affairs at other bank branches. During the current Covid crisis it is particularly inappropriate to require customers to travel considerable distances, often by public transport. In recent years, Brentford has experienced very considerable increases in population and this growth will accelerate in the coming few years. We would suggest that the imminent closure of this branch is entirely inappropriate and may, in the fullness of time, be regarded as a very poor business decision

  • Extend the Freedom of Information Act to companies awarded government contracts
    The Freedom of Information (FOI) Act is essential to holding the government accountable. But it’s being undermined by a major loophole: it doesn’t apply to government contractors. Since the Act was passed, outsourcing has vastly expanded. Government now spends £292bn a year buying goods and services – more than a third of all public expenditure. Private companies like Serco, G4S and Capita receive millions of pounds of taxpayers’ money, but because they’re not subject to FOI we can’t properly hold them to account. During the pandemic £10.5bn of government contracts were awarded without competitive tender and hundreds of millions was spent on “potentially unsuitable” PPE according to the National Audit Office, the spending watchdog. It also found that suppliers with political connections were 10 times more likely to receive government contracts. Access to contractor-held information depends on the public authority and contractor agreeing to it in the contract – a totally unacceptable situation that allows vital information to be withheld from the public. We think the FOI Act should be extended to cover all contractor-held information via an FOI request to the public authority. Major contractors should be required to answer requests directly. Support for bringing contractors under FOI has come from: - The Information Commissioner, who enforces the FOI Act. - The House of Commons Public Administration & Constitutional Affairs Committee - The House of Commons Public Accounts Committee - The Committee on Standards in Public Life - The government appointed Independent Commission on Freedom of Information - The UK Anti-Corruption Coalition, which brings together 18 of the UK’s leading anti-corruption organisations - The Open Government Network of civil society organisations Will you sign the petition urging Boris Johnson to extend FOI so we can hold companies with contracts paid for by the taxpayer to account?
