Over 70 MPs attend parliamentary launch of Clean for The Queen

More than 70 MPs, including Government Ministers and the Mayor of London,  attended the parliamentary launch of the Clean for The Queen campaign in the Jubilee Room at the Houses of Parliament.

They entered into the spirit of the campaign and donned purple campaign t-shirts and wielded litter pickers for a photocall to publicise the campaign and to lead the call for community groups, schools and businesses to help tidy up their local area in their constituencies ahead of The Queen’s 90th birthday.

More than one million people are expected to join the UK’s largest litter pick over the Clean for The Queen Weekend over 4, 5 and 6 March.

The Prime Minister is backing the campaign. David Cameron said: “I am delighted that West Oxfordshire is joining the UK’s biggest anti-litter campaign ahead of The Queen’s 90th birthday. 

“It really is a special event and provides great momentum for communities to gather together and do our bit to clean up – and get our country looking fit for a Queen!”

The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson,  is donating 100 clean-up kits containing litter pickers, gloves and rubbish bags for the  special clean-up weekend.  Boris Johnson, said: “ I want to encourage everyone to get together like-minded neighbours and friends to litter pick, plant, paint and tidy and really brighten local spaces. This year we have the extra incentive of making our city as beautiful as possible in honour of The Queen.”
