Greens today unveiled a new strategy for tackling Bristol’s housing crisis; one they say contains the ‘building blocks for a housing revolution’ in the city. Molly Scott Cato, Green Party candidate for Bristol West, and Tony Dyer, candidate in Bristol South, will launch the new housing strategy this Friday at HAB Housing in Bristol, the firm of architects set up by TV celebrity architect Kevin McCloud. The two parliamentary candidates, who jointly wrote the new report, will focus particularly on ‘a new settlement for renters’ which promises protections enjoyed by tenants in other parts of Europe and in Scotland.
Molly is set to join protesters at the March for Education rally in Bristol on Saturday. The Green Party parliamentary candidate for Bristol West said: “Last week, primary children across Bristol took their SATS tests. It would be great if this was the last time that these pointless and stressful tests are inflicted on our children. Getting rid of SATs tests would be a big step towards broadening the curriculum away from a narrow test-driven focus. Full marks to our wonderful teachers who still manage to put creativity into lessons and inspire children to learn, but scrapping SATS would free them up to do so much more."
Molly Scott Cato pledges action on the Bristol's mental health 'crisis', as the Green Party announces its key commitments to mental health wellbeing. The Green Party have pledged to: - Give mental health parity of esteem with physical health - Make sure everyone who needs psychological therapy receives it within 28 days of being referred - Roll out of new school-based therapy to treat mental ill health earlier and awareness and empathy education to limit the likelihood of bullying
Molly has welcomed the emerging West Country local election results, as counting continues. The Green Party is successfully defending a number of seats while making gains across the region.
"A ratification referendum is the chance to give back control."
“With this election, we are at a crossroads for Britain's future. Today marks the beginning of the Green Party’s campaign for a bold, positive future for our country, in full opposition to the extreme Brexit and far-right agenda threatened by the Tories.
