Early day motion 1247: ME AWARENESS WEEK 2018
Carol Monaghan MP is asking for your help to encourage other MPs to sign this EDM so that it leads to a debate in the UK Parliament:
That this House recognises Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) Awareness Week from 6 to 12 May 2018, which aims to highlight the impact this invisible illness has on 250,000 people across the UK; recognises the fantastic work campaigners and charities are doing to highlight ME as a physical condition which is not all in the mind; acknowledges the detrimental effect of the PACE trials and its results, and the work which is being done to reverse this; and encourages people to go blue for ME across the week, to further bring this illness out of the shadows and into the spotlight.
Find the contact details for your MP on the UK Parliament website. You can contact them by email, phone or letter.
