We've been challenging MPs and peers since last September – through our Manifesto – to ensure that National Parks remain beautiful and inspirational places which make a significant contribution to the economy. In recent weeks, CNP (the Campaign for National Parks) have met senior representatives from the main political parties to discuss our Manifesto and the huge cuts to Government funding for National Parks.
Chief Executive Julian Woolford said it was time for members to challenge prospective parliamentary candidates: "We want an immediate stop to the Government cuts to our National Parks, which are putting at risk our most beautiful and valued landscapes. Now is the time for our member to put prospective MPs on the spot to ensure that they care about the long-term future of our National Parks."
We've got five questions that we'd love you to ask candidates, which you can see here.
