Act now: Westminster Hall debate 15 October

06 October 2020

Westminster Hall is hosting a debate on a disability-inclusive response to Coronavirus at 1.30pm on 15 October.

It is critical that you encourage your MP to attend this. You can write to your MP here: https://www.writetothem.com/

We suggest you tell them when the debate is, that you would like them to attend, and why it matters to you that the voice of disabled people is strongly put forward at this debate.

We would encourage DPOs to write to the Minister for Disability, Justin Tomlinson, requesting the same thing. You can do this by emailing him at: justin.tomlinson.mp@parliament.uk

You can follow the debate live online at Parliament TV: https://parliamentlive.tv/Commons
