Birmingham City Council (No. 2)

EDM number 999 in 1993-94, proposed by Jeff Rooker on 12/04/1994.

That this House notes the claim in the Conservative Party political broadcast of Wednesday 6th April that Birmingham City Council spent ú400 on recycled paper clips instead of the ú12 normal cost; believes this claim was designed to ridicule Birmingham's contribution to National Environmental Week in 1992; welcomes the fact that this national event was taken seriously as an educational exercise by the Second City; understands that the modest total expenditure of ú400 included the collation, layout and publication of a programme of 70 local environmental events on recycled paper, postage costs of sending environmental educational materials to the schools and the costs of using some waste plastic to create heart shaped plastic paper clips to be given to children as an example of making a product from waste; believes all this information was known to Birmingham Conservative councillors and therefore available to Saatchi and Saatchi, the makers of the broadcast, and the Chairman of the Conservative Party who represents a Birmingham constituency.

This motion has been signed by a total of 65 MPs.
