Jessica Morden Jessica Morden - Labour MP for Newport East, Shadow Deputy Leader of the House of Commons and PPS to Keir Starmer
The Motor Neurone Disease Association are absolutely right – 18 months on from the govt. launching a review into benefits for terminally ill people – & 6 months after I presented a bill on the issue, working with MND Association & Marie Curie UK– there is still no news.
It’s time for action from the DWP.
This is an issue which cuts to the core of the moral purpose of our social security system & the values of the society we want to live in.
