What to Do
CONTACT YOUR MP
At this stage in the progress of the Bill, the best course of action is to Tweet messages to or call your MP.
- WriteToThem.com is the quickest and easiest way to write a message to an MP.
- A letter in the post can be more effective, because by law, all letters to your MP have to be answered. You can find your MP by entering your postcode into this page. Write to them at:
House of Commons
London SW1A 0AA
- You can telephone your MP. Here is a list of MPs and their contact details, where published.
CONTACT A MEMBER OF THE HOUSE OF LORDS
- Peers are not ‘lobbied’ but ‘briefed’. Don’t harangue a Peer. Instead, write a respectful, straightforward letter outlining the problems and suggesting a course of action to take.
- Here are some guidelines on composing letters to Parliamentarians. Write to them at:
House of Lords
London SW1A 0PW
- You can telephone a Member of the House of Lords. These are the key Peers to contact.
- Twitter @LabourLordsUK; and www.labourlords.org.uk
- When contacting Labour Lords, please remind them that the EU Orphan Works Directive has been formulated specifically to solve the problems that museums, archives, libraries and the Cultural Heritage Sector faces, and that the EU has specifically rejected ECL for the collective management of copyright. ERRB Clause 68 is unnecessary.
- A letter in the post can be more effective than an email.
