Recent appearances

  • Petitions and e-petitions: Backbench Business — Mental Health and Unemployment 24 Feb 2015

    I am extremely interested in what the right hon. Gentleman is saying, and agree with all of it. In some cases, however, work itself can be the cause of mental health issues—for instance, when there is bullying or poor management. The work that we do in the Chamber makes us feel good about ourselves, and work can do that, but it can also be a cause of mental health problems.
