Subject: Post 1901 Census - updates to website
Date: Fri, 27 Feb 2004 09:47:23 -0800
To aid everyone in contacting MPs to express concerns regarding public
access to Historic Census records updates have been made to the MP
Scoreboard on the Post 1901 Census Project website at the URL following
my signature. Addresses of Constituency Office addresses for MPs have
been added to the individual MP correspondence logs.
One MP has as many as nine Consituency Addresses while two did not show
any listings for a Constituency Office. Those two obviously have little
interest in meeting with their constituents.
It is important that we continue to contact our Parliamentary
Representatives to ensure they know what we seek is the same,
unrestricted access to Census records after 1906 that we have for 240
years up to that time. We must keep this issue fresh in their minds.
We cannot let them think that we have given up.
PLEASE check the position shown for your MP on the Scoreboards before
contacting them so that you are aware of what that position is. It does
not gain us anything if we rave at our MP for not supporting access when
they have already stated support and their postition is shown on the
Scoreboard. As usual, if you receive a response from your MP that
differs from the position shown on the Scoreboard, please forward to me
a copy of that response so that I can update their correspondence log.
I am currently double checking Ministerial email addresses and hope to
have them updated shortly.
