Vote now for the 2012 National Federation Resolutions

As members of a national organisation we get to vote every year on the resolutions the whole of the WI will focus on.
Please only vote if you haven't already posted the form in your last WI Life Magazine
You can only vote for one resolution, and the federation will choose the 2 most popular topics for this year

Voting closes soon...



Resolution Shortlist
 
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.

  1. I'd like to ask Stoke Newington WI members to consider voting against item 6 on the above resolution shortlist.

    The evidence from other countries is that compulsory helmet legislation would not reduce the number of head injuries, but _would_ reduce the number of people cycling, thereby creating an overall disbenefit to public health.

    For more information, please have a look at the following two websites, which argue the case better than I can:

    No Helmet Law

    Bicycle Helmet Research Foundation
