Model letter to MP - Coalition 2010

Dear (name of MP)


I am contacting you today to ask you to support the following EDM, which has been tabled by Dr Ian Gibson, MP for Norwich North:

That this House welcomes the launch of the Coalition 2010 campaign fronted by the National Union of Students, National Association of Teachers in Further and Higher Education, AUT, National Union of Teachers, Association of Teachers and Lecturers and the National Association of Schoolmasters/Union of Women Teachers; supports the Coalition's aim to fight against the removal of the 3,000 cap during the lead up to the Government's review of education funding beginning in 2008; questions whether the Government's pledge to widen participation in education can be reconciled with the prospect of ever-growing fees for students; believes that the removal of this cap will serve to deter students from poorer and less traditional backgrounds from going to university; and urges the Government not to increase the 3,000 cap following the review period.

I would appreciate it if you could show your support for this campaign by signing this EDM.

NUS is joining forces with key allies across the education sector to maintain the fight for free education. As well as showing your support by signing this EDM, I urge you to join our coalition you can do this by signing up through our website at or by contacting the Public Affairs team at NUS at 0871 221 8221.

Thank you for your time.

Yours sincerely
