Huge thanx again to Prev MP Mark Holland who fought tirelessly for these changes with his series of Bills over the years! So sad to see he won’t be championing these badly needed changes anymore on the Hill but I’m sure he’ll continue the support how he can! You and your Bills are our inspiration and we will continue this fight until it gets done! Best wishes on your future endeavours and thanx for being our voice for so long! You will be missed! Good luck Mark! x
