We're asking our three Southwark MPs if they will oppose airport expansion - both to protect residents from noise and pollution and to combat climate change. The question has been asked in Southwark News and by individual members. We are still waiting for the MPs to let us know where they stand. If you live in Southwark, you can help by emailing your MP:
- Neil Coyle (Bermondsey and Old Southwark): email@example.com
- Harriet Harman (Camberwell and Peckham): firstname.lastname@example.org
- Helen Hayes (Dulwich and West Norwood): email@example.com
Please remember to include your address, so that they know you live in their constituency.
