Merton CIL General Election Special Newsletter – June 2017
Last time we got in touch we were asking people to make sure they registered to vote because we want to support Deaf and Disabled people to be part of the democratic process. In this newsletter, Deaf and Disabled people and their families, supporters and friends can find out what Parliamentary Candidates say they will do to address issues which matter. We bring you a review of some of the policies from the three main parties, the Conservatives, Labour and Liberal Democrats.
Unfortunately both the planned hustings events for Mitcham & Morden constituency and for Wimbledon constituency had to be cancelled following the suspension of campaigning after the horrific events in Manchester in May.
We wanted to give people the opportunity to find out candidates’ we invited along to the hustings views on the issues which matter to local Deaf and Disabled people so we sent them questions on 5 key issues and they all responded. You can read the completely unedited responses in our newsletter.
We hope that you find this newsletter interesting and perhaps it will even help you with your decision. As we are independent at Merton CIL we would never tell you who to vote for. But, we respectfully suggest, please, use your vote and have a say!
