ME: Treatment and Research — [Mr Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (21 Jun 2018)

Steve Brine: I shall start where everyone else has started and thank the hon. Member for Glasgow North West (Carol Monaghan), who secured this important debate, very much.

Raising awareness of this debilitating condition is critical,...

ME: Treatment and Research — [Mr Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (21 Jun 2018)

Steve Brine: That is so unlike the hon. Gentleman. Good clarification. The stigma quite rightly has been mentioned by pretty much everyone who have spoken today. We recognise that people with ME have encountered significant stigma, in part due to the unfavourable media representations of the condition that not only go back to the 1980s but have continued in recent times. I have seen a clip of Ricky...

ME: Treatment and Research — [Mr Andrew Rosindell in the Chair] (21 Jun 2018)

Members who requested the debate also flagged the issue of benefits. I know they would like, and are having, an ongoing conversation with the DWP. I am clearly not a DWP Minister—they wanted a Health Minister to respond to the debate,...
