I congratulate my hon. Friend on securing this hugely important and timely debate. One of my constituents contacted me, and in her words:

“I’ve suffered pain, I’ve soiled myself, suffered depression and sepsis. My employment contract as a store manager will be terminated in the next few weeks due to ill health.

My life has changed dramatically but others shouldn’t have to suffer the same fate. It really is unacceptable that we are in 2017 and this is allowed to happen.”

I have no doubt that my hon. Friend will agree.
