With the parliamentary session now in full swing it has been a busy week in Westminster – aren’t they all?
I was pleased to present my 10 minute rule bill about body image and digitally enhanced images, and even more so to gain the support of Girl Guiding, the Mental Health Foundation, social media influencers and even Love Island contestants!
I’m delighted that the bill has passed its first stage with the support of Select Committee Chairs Jeremy Hunt, Caroline Nokes and Julian Knight, as well as signatories from Labour, Liberal Democrats, SNP and DUP.
