Commons Debate on Ending TB & Meeting with Demos

Today the House of Commons will debate Nick's backbench motion calling for the Government’s fullest possible support and the Prime Minister's attendance at the forthcoming UN High-Level Meeting on TB (September 2018).  It will be the first time the UN General Assembly has held a High-Level Meeting on TB and Nick, says that it has the potential to transform the global response to the disease.

The text of the motion can be read by clicking here and Nick's article for the House Magazine, We have a clear moral duty to lead the way on tackling tuberculosis, can be read by clicking here.

Afterwards Nick will meet Polly Mackenzie, the Director of Demos, a cross-party think tank to discuss various political issues and campaigns.  In the evening, Nick will watch the Beating Retreat on Horse Guards Parade.
