Westminster meeting with MPs

In April, alongside the MND Association we held a briefing session with SNP MPs in Westminster.

Westminster meeting with MPs

Posted : 01/05/2016

The event was hosted by Richard Arkless MP, who sadly recently lost his mother to MND. We discussed our work and how we can assist their constituents with the illness.

We highlighted the ‘reserved’ areas of our manifesto and how they can help challenge the welfare reform agenda at Westminster which can have a detrimental impact on people with MND. We also discussed the planned devolution of some benefits including Personal Independence Payment (PIP) and Carers Allowance, and why it is so important that the handover of these powers to the Scottish Parliament is as smooth as possible.
