Catherine McKinnell MP, Chair of the House of Commons Petitions Committee, gave a personal message to all those who petitioned and campaigned for extra support for new parents in light of Covid-19 following the debate on their petition.
“Everyone who has signed this petition and campaigned should be proud of the work they have done to make sure that MPs and the Government do not lose sight of the support that new parents need. Although your petition hasn’t had the outcome you’ve been hoping for, at least not yet, your hard work and campaigning has been crucial in raising awareness of this important issue among MPs and among the wider public.”
