It was an honour to lead the debate in Parliament for Autism Awareness Week. I gave my opening speech on behalf of our All Party Parliamentary Chairman, Dame Cheryl Gillian. It was an inspired debate and speeches followed from MPs from across the country and party divide.
In my closing words, I spoke of the need for all in Parliament to do our best to help deliver the services needed by autistic people and those who support them. The debate was Parliament at its best.
