You can amend an Early Day Motion (EDM). Any MP can add their name to your amendment. The process is the same as for adding your name to the original EDM.

You can’t sign both an EDM and an amendment to it. If you sign an amendment to an EDM, the Table Office will remove your name from the main EDM.

You can’t amend your own EDM, but you can withdraw it (even if other MPs have already signed it). Contact the Table Office to withdraw your EDM (email tableoffice@parliament.uk or phone 3305).
