EDM number 587 in 2008-09, proposed by Nick Palmer on 26/01/2009.
Categorised under the topics of Aviation and Environmental protection.

That this House notes that a campaign by Greenpeace sent around 7,000 largely identical emails to hon. Members who had signed an Early Day Motion about Heathrow; observes that this caused some hon. Members' mailboxes to become unavailable to constituents who wished to discuss this or other issues or personal problems; further notes that a request to discontinue was not accepted unless hon. Members were willing to commit to vote as the organisation wished; and believes that denial of email service by mass spam is an inappropriate and unpersuasive tactic.

This motion has been signed by a total of 27 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
