Catherine McKinnell: This debate is as vital as it is urgent, on something that has deeply affected my constituency and continues to do so.

That is a good suggestion to ensure that those voices are heard in Parliament, and the intention of this debate is very much to...

Safeguarding Adults with Learning Disabilities — [Phil Wilson in the Chair] (17 Oct 2017)

Catherine McKinnell: I thank my hon. Friend for her intervention. It is hard to imagine a more harrowing and disturbing case than that of Lee Irving.

I am sorry; I must do this subject the justice of staying composed. I am particularly...
