LONDON’S Green Party MEP Jean Lambert will discuss her work in the European Parliament with London Assembly chair Darren Johnson at a formal meeting of Lewisham Green party members on Monday.
Ms Lambert will highlight the relevance of her recent work – including demanding that residents are given a say in fracking proposals, calling for a ban on caste-based discrimination, trying to maintain passenger and pilot safety in the face of proposals to extend flying times and the safety of refugees following the Lampedusa tragedy – to Londoners.
Speaking ahead of the meeting, she said: “As one of the capitals MEP’s, I work on behalf of Londoners every day,representing them on complaints about London’s poor air quality or long working hours for low pay, and in the legislative work I do.
“This week, for example, I have worked on a wide range of everyday issues for those living in the capital, from the size of our health warnings on cigarettes to the public’s right to be consulted on major developments near their homes – as well as visiting a food bank in Deptford to see for myself the effect of harsh austerity measures in South-East London.”
Ms Lambert and Mr Johnson will be available for interview – and their meeting will take place at the Lewisham Green Party AGM in Brockley from 7.30pm to 8.30pm. Photographers are welcome.
