Basingstoke Transition Network is not taking sides in the European Union in/out question, but we do feel strongly that our local MPs should be encouraging voters to think about the environment when they make up their minds in time for 23rd June. However modestly they present themselves in this matter, their arguments will be influential with voters, hence we were disappointed to see no mention of the environment in the context of the EU referendum on any of their websites. We have written to them all, stating our views on this.
The text of our letters is below.
We received replies from Kit Malthouse, whose position as declared on his website is against membership of the EU, and Maria Miller, who states that she is in favour of remaining in the EU.
