The Tories are yet again restricting access to justice, this time through a new Bill, the Civil Liabilities Bill, which will mean that injury victims who have suffered injury through someone else’s negligence, will not be able to recover their legal costs even if they win their case.

Along with Jenny Rathbone AM, I am pleased to be hosting a Macmillan Coffee Morning at Waterloo Tea, Lakeside on Friday October 5th.
Waterloo Tea also hosted the coffee morning last year, and were incredibly generous by donating their profits for the duration of the coffee morning.
This year we will be looking to beat our target!
The coffee morning will be running from 10am to 12 noon and there will be a selection of drinks and cakes for sale to help raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Care.
This is the perfect chance to catch up over a cuppa and a slice of cake for a great cause. One in three of us will face cancer, and the money we raise at the Coffee Morning will help make sure no one has to face it alone.
The World’s Biggest Coffee Morning is Macmillan’s biggest fundraising event for people facing cancer. People from all across the UK host their own Coffee Mornings and donations on the day are made to Macmillan. Last year alone £25 million was raised and this year they are planning on raising even more.
If you would like more information about the coffee morning please email email@example.com or call my office on 02921 329736.
