Ask the Climate Question

Next Thursday (25 March) at Didsbury Baptist Church there will be a hustings event organized by the RSPB called Ask the Climate Question. This will be a Question Time style event with prospective parliamentary candidates from the major parties for Withington Manchester.

Similar events will be taking place all over the country as The RSPB, Christian Aid, Oxfam, Tearfund, WWF-UK and other organisations have joined forces on this crucial issue to ask all their supporters to Ask the Climate Question.
