As you may have heard the Assisted Dying Bill was defeated last week. The debate was very good and I listened to all the arguments. I voted in favour of the Bill but such was the scale of opposition I think it is unlikely similar measures will return to Parliament for some time.
Defending our Green belt
It was an excellent exchange of views and Brandon gave us a considerable amount of impartial and well founded advice.
I will report back in more detail in my next email newsletter especially as we quizzed Brandon about how the Borough Council can amend the plans in particular to safeguard the Green belt at Toton and allow proper development of HS2.
Brandon is not allowed to make any comment on any planned or existing planning permissions but he did explain the rules and procedures to the large number of Councillors and campaigners who came along. My thanks to everyone involved.
