Warfare Experiments Using Animals

Thank you for contacting me about animal testing at Porton Down. 

Government Whips, of whom I am one, do not, by convention, sign any Early Day Motions, as doing so is likely to breach the Ministerial Code’s rules on collective responsibility.

Universal Credit: Children with Disabilities

Thank you for contacting me about the Child Disability Addition under Universal Credit (UC).

I firmly believe that parents should receive support from the state to help them raise children with disabilities.

Universal Credit and People with Cancer

Thank you for contacting me about people with cancer who claim Universal Credit (UC).

I believe it is crucial that people who suffer from health conditions such as cancer should receive as much support as possible to help reduce stress and anxiety.

UN Global Compact on Migration

Thank you for contacting me about the Global Compact on Migration.

The UK, alongside international partners, is committed to the UN process to develop both a Global Compact on Migration and a Global Compact on Refugees.
