Although Brexit was still lurking in the background of Parliament this week, the focus on debates on general topics over the last couple of weeks has allowed other issues to come to the fore.
This week I Chaired a meeting of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Motor Neurone Disease. We heard from a brave young man and his trouble with securing the benefits he needed to be able to stay mobile. The hurdles the Government is making people such as this jump through is unacceptable and unnecessary.
I also Chaired a Committee stage session on The draft National Minimum Wage (Amendment) Regulations 2018. It is good to see that this sort of Legislation is still going through Parliament, despite the workload that Brexit entails.
