Pat’s Petition along with all the other Independent Campaigners went to Westminster yesterday and Labour promised what Pat asked for - to stop and review the cuts to benefits and services which are falling disproportionately on disabled people, their carers and families.

They even promised a Cumulative Impact Assessment asked for by the WOW Petition

We contacted Mr Maynard for further explanation. We were pleased that, as a result of these communications, he agreed for the word ‘extremist’ be excised from the record. However, Hansard have now replied to him saying this is not possible. We have therefore asked him to write a correction on the copy of Hansard in the House of Commons library. (Awaiting response)
