The threat to allotments from the Government’s review of the 1908 Allotments Act has been averted, thanks to the huge response from the public and the media. The Prime Minister was asked about this in parliament, and said
” … It is extremely important that allotments are made available. Many Members will find that when they ask about that in their constituencies there are massive queues for allotments, as many people want to grow their own vegetables and food and understand more about where food comes from. It is a great movement, and it has my full support.”

Many thanks to everyone who filled in the survey form or wrote to their MP. Your actions really made a difference.
