Help David Heath's Fuel Poverty Bill

Just before Christmas, David Heath - the Lib Dem MP for Somerton and Frome - came second in the ballot for private members' bills. That means that he has a fighting chance of getting a now Act of Parliament on to the statute book.

On Friday 20 March his chosen measure, the Fuel Poverty Bill, has its second reading in the Commons. You can read more about the thinking behind the bill on the Liberal Democrats website and the Consumer Focus website.

In order for the bill to make progress next Friday, a hundred MPs must take part in the vote following the second reading debate.

So it would help David if you could write to your MP and ask him or her to turn up and vote for the bill. The Consumer Focus site has a draft letter.
