Earlier this month, Richard attended an event in Parliament to support the introduction of the Neonatal Care (Leave and Pay) Bill. The Bill aims to make provision about leave and pay for employees with responsibility for children receiving neonatal care.
Speaking at the event, Richard Fuller MP said:
I was delighted to attend the event hosted by Stuart McDonald MP and the UK’s leading charity for premature and sick babies, Bliss, to pledge support the introduction of the Neonatal Care (Leave and Pay) Bill.
The Bill was introduced to Parliament in June by SNP MP Stuart McDonald, and the second reading of the Bill is on July 15th. Stuart, who topped this year’s Private Member’s Bill Ballot, said, “No parent should have to choose between being with their premature or sick baby in neonatal care and having to go back to work to earn a living". A statement I'm sure we can all wholeheartedly support.
