Press your MP to support the Vestas Early Day Motion (EDM)

Hopefully, we will have saved the jobs at Vestas by the time Parliament returns from its summer recess (12 October!) but this Early Day Motion is nonetheless a good way now to discuss the Vestas campaign. It’s been sponsored by John McDonnell MP and currently has 13 supporters.

Find your MP and their contact details here and ask her/him to support the motion.



  1. Please step in and support the vestas factory, we need to produce wind turbines in the UK as an essential part of our future renewable enrgy resource.

  2. Have phoned Vesta’s at 857100 and informed the receptionist that VESTA, could be breaking the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 as well as human rights. Have contacted Helen Jones asking her to condemn the attemp to starve out workers and sign the early day motion – some chance.
    Will hand in note to her office later;
    Have contacted Miliband and he gave official reply; tried to contact him again but not got through !

  3. Have written to my MP Roger Williams,Lib. Dem. Brecon and Radnor as follows:

    Dear Mr Roger Williams,

    I am writing to urge you to support the action of the workers at Vestas, Isle of Wight, in their efforts to save local jobs and play an important role in the fight to reduce CO2 emissions because of the threat climate change poses to the planet.

    I support the Early Day Motion being called for and I would urge you to do the same.

    I strongly believe that the Government should not allow this important wind turbine manufacturing facility to be lost to the UK, and that the support of alternative technology is vital, not only to the UK, but the world.

    The pledges the Government has made to CO2 reduction look like a hollow sham if they allow this facility to be lost, and if they try to stifle the voices of concerned citizens on environmental issues. The Government should be harnessing all the goodwill and support it can get from ordinary people on environmental issues, and not dealing with public expressions of concern in a negative way.

    Yours sincerely,

    Rosemary Brown
