MP to apply for debate on Heritage Crafts

Whilst I was away in Germany last week my MP Tom Levitt visited Mike Turnock the country’s last sievemaker. More info on Tom’s website here

After the visit Tom wrote to me saying that he is going to apply for an adjournment debate on the conservation of heritage craft skills. These are allocated by ballot so there is no guarantee that it will happen but it would be great to see the issue debated in the house. An adjournment debate happens at the end of each working day and involves the MP speaking for 15 minutes on an issue then the relevant minister replying.

    Fantastic news! I hope the vote goes well. Is there anything that can be done to help it?
