On September 12th, we have an historic opportunity to make our secure the future of UK aid spending. That day, MP’s will be voting on Michael Moore MP’s Private Member’s Bill which seeks to enshrine our commitment to spending 0.7% of our Gross National Income on Overseas Aid.

On the day, we need to make sure that 100 supportive MPs are in the chamber and voting – we’re working hard with our partners from across the sector to ensure that MP’s know that they have to be there.

This month we’re going to be calling or visiting our MP’s, emailing the three party leaders calling for their support, and Tweeting our MP’s to get them in the room.

We will be discussing all of the actions, the politics behind the decisions, and much more on our monthly conference call, on Tuesday 2nd September at 7pm.

Our guest speaker on the call will be Baroness Alison Suttie. Baroness Suttie was Deputy Chief of Staff and Special Advisor to Nick Clegg, so she knows a thing or two about engaging politicians.

To join the call, you can call 0844 762 0762, 0203 398 1398 or 0800 22 90 900 and when prompted enter 18723#. If you would like to join your local RESULTS Group in your area for the meetings, please email Felix at RESULTS.
