On 20th November, Jim Cunningham MP started an Early Day Motion in the House of Commons which is urging the government to include in their forthcoming bailiff reform to oblige councils to prohibit "multiple" fee charging for each visit and to develop guidelines to protect vulnerable persons who are faced with bailiff action.


An EDM is a formal motion submitted to debate in the House of Commons by a Member of Parliament for debate on an "early date" ( namely an unspecified date in the future).


An Early Day Motion allows MP's to draw attention to the event and other MP's will then register their support by adding their signature to the EDM


So far, 21 MP's have signed the EDM bit it is rather worrying that only one MP is from the Conservative Party!!!


If anyone knows their MP....this is an excellent opportunity to ask that they add their signature to this EDM. Just ask them to support EDM number: 746 regarding Bailiffs.
