Steve hosts South Wonston School pupil in Parliament

Steve Brine hosted a special guest in London on Monday 6th July, as Mackenzie Evison took a tour of Parliament and had a cup of tea with his MP.

The Year 6 South Wonston pupil won a mock Prime Ministerial election at the school earlier this year, as Year 5 and Year 6 learnt about parliament and democracy, a project that Steve helped with as he visited the school to tell them about his work as their MP.

Steve said: "I said at the time that if I was re-elected I would be pleased to host the winner in Parliament, and it was great to meet Mackenzie up here with his dad. I know it was a busy day with the tour as well as our chat, and there is so much history and atmosphere to take in.

"It was great to be able to honour my promise to host the winner, and especially to be able to do this just weeks before he is due to start at Henry Beaufort."

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)
Steve Brine: I fully appreciate that point—the hon. Lady put it on the record very well earlier—which takes us on very neatly to welfare benefits. The hon. 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,...
