I congratulate my hon. Friend on her powerful and extremely well informed speech. One of those 10,000 in the Kettering constituency is Lisa, who has written to me to say,

“I spend most of my weeks, either with a migraine or with the after effects, which include complete exhaustion that can last two or three days. I have medication that does not always work. I get facial paralysis and will often have slurred speech, light sensitivity, nausea, dizziness, along with immense pain and pressure in my head. It is an awful existence.”

I want to pass on to my hon. Friend that Lisa adds,

“I am so glad to know that it is being debated in Parliament today.”
