We ran a quick poll amongst our Members on Facebook, with the promise to participants to let all our MPs know the results to pass on.
We went public after 2 days just as the government did a u-turn!
The speed with which we engaged with Members and fed back results just goes to show how quickly The Community Data Co-op can engage with the community and how in the future, as we grow, we can be a very useful finger on the pulse and help avoid errors of judgement such as these.
