This month, I submitted my first legislation to the House of Commons. This 10-Minute Rule bill gave me ten minutes to set out my case for stronger legislation on Nuisance Phone Calls, before the bill moves to second reading. Each bill is read 3 times in the Commons and 3 times in the Lords.
This will be a campaign for me going forward- Friday the 6th of July is the bill's next reading.
Over 70 Million Nuisance Phone Calls are made every year, and so many of us have been targetted by these calls. These include calls by scammers, who every year cheat vulnerable people out of millions of pounds.
Watch as I submit my Nuisance Phone Calls bill to the House of Commons! The traditions of the House make submitting a bill an interesting experience for an MP, with lots of bowing! I was delighted to be able to have the opportunity to bring this important issue before my colleagues, with support from over 100 MPs.
Friday, the 6th of July is the date for the next stage of my bill, and before then it would be great to be able to use real examples to strengthen my case in support of the bill. Please do get in touch if you have any!
