Kate in the chamber speaking to the Secretary of State

This afternoon I asked the Secretary of State for Health, Matt Hancock, about Early Day Motion 56 on suspension of maternity charges, which I tabled earlier in the week. You can watch my question below and read the full text of EDM 56 here.

It’s shocking that NHS charges may have caused maternal deaths by stopping vulnerable migrant women from seeking the maternity care they need. That’s why I’m supporting organisations such as the Royal College of Midwives in calling on the Secretary of State to suspend the charging regime and conduct a full, independent review into the public health impact of these charges.
