Dear Network,

On Monday I sent the letter about the delay to the action plan to Minister Margot James MP.

Yesterday, we also were able to get an exclusive with PoliticsHome to publish an article about the story, using our Press Release. This is now online.

We will also be tweeting this morning and throughout the day. Please retweet and support getting this out far and wide!

Many thanks to those of you who helped pull this together - from commenting on the letter, to the press release, to reaching out to politicians and journalists.

Now we await the reply from government :slight_smile:
