Voting closes soon...
1. Field study centres and outdoor education
At a time when understanding of the complexity of environmental issues is paramount, the WI opposes the closure of outdoor and field study centres, depriving future generations of schoolchildren of their recognised academic and social benefits.
2. Airborne litter
The NFWI urges Her Majesty's Government to legislate against the sale and release of sky (Chinese) lanterns and the mass release of balloons because of the damage that can be done to animals, crops and property.
3. Reducing fuel poverty
The NFWI urges Her Majesty's Government to address fuel poverty.
4. Employment of more midwives
There are chronic shortages of midwives. The NFWI calls on the Government to increase investment in the training, employment and retention of midwives in England and Wales to ensure services are adequately resourced and are able to deliver a high standard of care.
5. Achieving legal status for British Sign Language as an indigenous minority language in the UK The WI urges Her Majesty's Government to give British Sign Language (BSL) the same legal status and protection as other regional and minority languages (e.g. Welsh and Gaelic).
6. Helmets for cyclists
The NFWI urges Her Majesty's Government to make the wearing of helmets when cycling a legal requirement.
