Open meeting of C4EJ Friday 22 May 09

By Tony Vickers on May 18, 2009 8:51 AM

You are invited to attend this meeting to understand how various organisations belonging to the newly formed Coalition for Economic Justice (C4EJ) - of which ALTER is a founder member - approach the idea of Land Value Capture in the current British political context. At least four organisations will have 15 minutes to present their views, followed by 15 minutes of questions.

The meeting is at the School of Economic Science, 11 Mandeville Place, London (near Bond Street underground) from 2pm to 6pm - and is free to members of ALTER or the Liberal Democrat Party, and their guests. Please let Tony Vickers know if you intend to be there.

A summary of ALTER's own position is being circulated to other C4EJ member organisations this week, along with those of the Labour Land Campaign, Social Liberalist Party and Land Value Taxation Campaign.

This summary was also sent to three Lib Dem MPs last week, prior to a meeting with them scheduled to discuss how ALTER can help them campaign on our policies in this area in the run-up to the General Election. Unfortunately the meeting was curtailed at the last minute: only Sarah Teather (housing spokesperson) could attend; Vince Cable had to be at a constituent's funeral and Lorely Burt had an important meeting with a small businesses lobby group (this is her portfolio). However all three MPs sent their researchers and four members of ALTER's committee had a useful discussion which we will be following up by further meetings.
