Tony Colman MP for Putney writes
have met recently with Metronet - the company that will be
running the District Line - about which I have received many
letters from Putney residents. If any one has any specific
concerns that they would like to see addressed by the new
managers, feel free to get in contact with me.
continue to lobby against aircraft noise, still affecting
many Putney residents. I recently joined forces with a cross
party group of MPs to table a motion calling on the government
to address all nuisance noise - from aircrafts to anti-social
this week I was introduced to the new style black cab at the
House of Commons. They offer full access for the disabled
with a revolutionary new design providing a ramp for wheelchair
users and swing-out seats to enable easier access.
see from the SW15 forum that more people are complaining about
the new Putney-Barnes bus service - I'll continue to lobby
for this to be made a more comprehensive service. Any one
with any particular points should let me know.
am continuing to lobby Ministers and the Council to ensure
that Putney schools get the funding they deserve. Instead
of this continuous sparring between local councils and the
government I would like to see both work together to ensure
that schools' increased outgoings, due largely to increased
teachers' pay, are fully funded.
Putney in a Globalised World
United Nations All Party Group met again this week, our main
agenda being 'Globalisation, Work and Poverty', with the UK
Director of the International Labour Office, Peter Brannen.
I've also met with the Director of Fairtrade International,
on improving trade relations between the developing world
and Europe and raising awareness of Fairtrade products.
Oxfam branch has been given a facelift and I was honoured
to attend its re-opening in mid-April. Fair Trade products
are to be found throughout the store, I wish Putney's Oxfam
well for future trading on the High Street and to continue
to campaign for trade justice for the world.
