House of Commons debate – ‘no go’ for next week

We have just been informed that John Bercow MP has not been successful in the ballot to try and secure a House of Commons adjournment debate on ME in the week beginning November 19.

However, this does not prevent MPs making further attempts at securing a debate in the next weekly ballot.


Consequently, we would urge anyone who has not yet done so to write to their MP about this matter using the two-page letter that is contained in the October issue of ME Essential magazine.
