Dizzy blogs this morning that the cost of printing Early Day Motions has now gone over £1 million a year. This is ridiculous. I question why they need to be printed at all. Why can't they all be put on the Parliament website and MPs can add their names electronically? It makes total sense. There can surely be no argument against it.
In a week when we have found the government cutting £500,000 funding from the Missing People charity, it is simply wrong to spend double that amount on the equivalent of parliamentary graffit, whose only purpose seems to be to serve the egos of the MPs who sign them. Well, an exaggeration possibly but you know what I mean.
