About the campaign
The General Election is the biggest decision the UK will make this year. Previous public votes have clearly shown the urgent need for reliable facts in political debate and the importance of reliable information and evidence for democratic decision-making.
Our Facts matter campaign for the General Election asks political parties and candidates to endorse the vital role of facts and evidence in public life. We're calling on parties and candidates and to take a public pledge that ‘Facts matter’ and to declare their commitment to running an evidence-based election campaign.
There is a growing movement to fight for evidence and facts in public life, which CILIP is proud to be part of. Facts matter is a vital opportunity to strengthen public trust in our political system and institutions.
