Petition is successful with 6,203 signatures
To: Sir Keir Starmer MP
Please vote AGAINST the HS2 bill on 23rd March
UPDATE: 29/03/16 - We Won!
Many thanks to all those of you who signed the petition, it received 6,202 signatures!
And it worked. The petition helped to support our MP, Keir Starmer, in voting against the HS2 bill in the House of Commons last week.
We all know that the borough of Camden will suffer terrible damage from the effects of HS2 for over 20 years. In order to vote against HS2, both of Camden's MPs were obliged to defy a three line whip. We are immensely grateful both to Keir Starmer and to Tulip Siddiq (MP for Hampstead and Kilburn) for putting their constituents' interests first.
Thank you Keir and thank you Tulip for standing by us in these dificult times.
