We congratulate John Bercow, MP for Buckingham and a patron of The ME Association, who was elected Speaker of the House of Commons last night. He's pictured on a working visit a couple of years ago to the MEA office in Buckingham with, from the left: Neil Riley, chairman; Gill Briody, company secretary; Dr Charles Shepherd, medical adviser, and Lucy Kingham, office assistant.
Mr Bercow is also a member of the All Party Parliamentary Group on ME.
On 12 June 2002, he spoke about the need for ME research in a well-attended Commons adjournment debate. Text here.
