Default Today - 8/1/18 Parliamentary Debate Genetics and Insurance

I put up a Thread under the Insurance Forum but there appears to have been little interest.

I just thought it might be worth highlighting in the General Forum in case people look here first.

Later today Gavin Newlands MP (SNP Party) will be debating in House of Commons on the subject of Genetics and Insurance.

More details given in the following Thread

Just finished watching the debate! Good to hear your own very relevant comments mentioned by Gavin Trish.
Time was of the essence here wasn't it.....or sadly lack of! Information from member of my own family regarding the debate was circulated to our own MP and other MPs on Friday..... via social media......but we would have taken a more direct approach given time..... as we did a couple of years ago, when we received a very positive outcome and contribution from our own MP and her attendance at the last APPG after getting in touch through the 'official route'! with written request asking for her to attend. Still.. win some... lose some.... but hopefully not!! Yes, times they are a changing!

Thank you Crystal

I hope that this is just the start of something and not the end.

Very grateful to Gavin and hus Office for their taking on board my comments and was surprised but thrilled to get a mention

The debate can be seen HERE if anyone missed it.
