The office of Thangam Debbonaire MP has asked us to note that from 1st July 2015 until September 2016 Thangam Debbonaire was having treatment for cancer. During that time she was ‘paired’ for votes – so her absence was matched by a Tory absence. In effect constituents continued to be represented. She worked from the constituency on constituency matters, she and her staff continued to do casework, answer policy emails, submit questions to Ministers.
