The government needs to act on female genital mutilation

Last week a Private Members' Bill aimed at protecting young girls from female genital mutilation was brought to the Commons. The bill would clear up a loophole in the law. Currently, female genital mutilation doesn't count as one of the conditions for a temporary care order to be issued.

Children's Mental Health Week

When the Liberal Democrats were in Government, I had the privilege of being Minister of State for Care and Support at the Department of Health. As Health Minister I worked to ensure that mental health was treated with the same priority as physical health, introducing the first ever access and waiting time standards for mental health. We also secured more money for children and young people’s mental health services. Almost half of all LGBT+ pupils still face bullying at school for being lesbian or gay or bisexual or transgender.  Half have self-harmed.
