Meninigitis B Vaccination

Thank you to everyone who took the time to contact me about the Meninigitis B vaccination.I understand that meningococcal infections can be very serious, causing meningitis and blood poisoning, and this is most common in babies and young children.

Schools Admission Codes

Thank you for contacting me about the proposed changes to the School Admissions Code which will ensure that only local parents and local authorities are able to object to a school's admission arrangements.

Animals in Circuses

Thank you for contacting me about wild animals in circuses. I know that the Government remains fully committed to introducing a ban on wild animals in circuses and supported the Private Member's Bill, the Wild Animals in Circuses Bill, in the last Parliament.
