One last push to increase pressure

  • Comment

Barry Sheerman has called for a 'final push' in the AJ's PPG7 campaign, demanding more architects write to their MPs.

The Labour MP called for a renewed letter campaign to parliamentarians asking them to sign up to the AJ's Early Day Motion, which calls for the retention of the Country House clause.

As speculation increases that John Prescott could be on the verge of a U-turn when the replacement PPS7 is published, Sheerman said more EDM signatories would 'add to the pressure'.

'If we really make a push for this and keep the number of parliamentarian supporters ever increasing, the government will have no choice but to take note.'

High-profile MPs already signed up include Labour's first architecture minister Alan Howarth, father of the house Tam Dalyell, veteran rightwinger Teddy Taylor and former culture secretary Chris Smith.
