Ask party leaders to make manifesto commitments to banning vulture funds in the next parliament

With the Debt Relief (developing countries) Private Members' bill run out of time by a Conservative MP blocking it and the Labour government not providing it with more time in this parliament the only chance to prevent profiteering from third world debt by UK-based "vulture funds" now is after the General Election.

The Jubilee Debt Campaign have a page where you can send messages to all the party leaders asking them to make manifesto commitments that they'll vote for the bill in the next parliament and that if they form the government they'll provide it with enough parliamentary time to pass (see the 'TAKE ACTION' links on the right of the page on this link).
