The RAV campaign continues to lobby at local level.

Last night in Huddersfield, MAG members and RAV supporters met with Barry Sheerman (Labour), who is seeking re-election to the Yorkshire constituency.

Over 30 riders came to what was the first RAV hustings where only one candidate was invited, at the Field Head PH.

Following some regrettable comments about motorcyclists that Mr Sheerman made last month, his electorate were taking positive action and holding him to account directly.

Although the meeting was frank, there were favourable outcomes and Mr Sheerman said that he had the best interests of his motorcycling constituents at heart.

He also tabled EDM 1246 before Parliament was disolved which called for the recognition that ‘appalling car driving’ was a large contributory factor in motorcycle casualties and that it must be addressed.

Direct lobbying can bring results. The power to influence your candidates is yours.

Hats off to Huddersfield MAG for their direct action.
