Just received this call from UNITE. Those of us, who are members of the Twitterati are being asked to tweet before tomorrow noon ahead of Eric Pickles facing the Communities and Local Government Committee next Monday.

On Monday 9 December, the Communities and Local Government Committee will hold an oral evidence session with Eric Pickles, the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government.

Remember to submit your question before 11pm on Wednesday 4 December and add the hashtag #AskPickles to any tweet you send – don’t forget to retweet as many times as possible.
