Headway champion pushes for legislative change in Parliament

Thu 17 Jun 2021

Chris Bryant MP, one of Headway’s valued Parliamentary Champions, has been a long-time advocate of all things brain injury. He has recently been successful in tabling a Private Members’ Bill on Acquired Brain Injury.

The MP, who is also the chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Acquired Brain Injury, is seeking to bring legislation that would require the government to consult on and publish an Acquired Brain Injury Strategy.

Sarah Russell, Headway’s Public Affairs Manager, said: “Despite it being notoriously difficult to get Private Members’ Bills progressed through the House, they can stimulate wider debate and potentially affect legislation indirectly.

“As always we are hugely grateful to Chris for continuing to speak up for brain injury survivors and their loved ones.”

To find out more about how Private Members’ Bills work, take a look at the UK Parliament website.
