Before the festive season I sent a submission to a Parliamentary Select Committee on Transport. Many of the Committees in Parliament both in the Commons and Lords often request submissions from the public, organisations and businesses on the various topics under discussion in regard to legislation which is going through the Houses of Parliament or may do so at a later date.

The methods of submission and how to do so are on the website with details of how to submit via online or written. It is a way of showing one is a citizen not just a consumer. In this day and age a vital thing to do is to show that the vote which was so keenly fought for and difficult to obtain is not wasted. Individuals from countries where the vote is not so free appreciate what this country has in regard to democracy.
