Sec­ond hon­our for MP Thelma

Huddersfield Daily Examiner - - FRONT PAGE -

COLNE Val­ley MP Thelma Walker has been named Cam­paigner of the Week for the sec­ond time in as many months by Par­lia­ment’s in-house mag­a­zine, The House.

The Novem­ber 13 is­sue com­mended her on­go­ing fight to do away with VAT on com­mu­ni­ty­bought de­fib­ril­la­tors.

Mrs Walker first beat 649 mem­bers of Par­lia­ment to the award for her #Thel­ma100­days cam­paign on so­cial me­dia, which shared the ex­pe­ri­ences of a new mem­ber of par­lia­ment.

She said “I am sur­prised and hum­bled to have been picked for a sec­ond time around so soon for Cam­paigner of the Week. When I was elected to Par­lia­ment, I said I would cam­paign on the is­sues that im­pact our lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties and I have been do­ing that.” To sign the pe­ti­tion to scrap VAT on com­mu­nity-pur­chased de­fib­ril­la­tors, visit: https://you.38de­ petitions/scrap-vat-on-com­mu­ni­ty­pur­chased-de­fib­ril­la­tors
