On Friday 30 November, Kevan spoke in support of Gavin Barwell MP’s Private Members Bill as it passed its remaining stages in the Commons.

During the debate, Kevan said, “It will take time to change people’s attitudes, but the debate in this House on 14 June and the passage of the Bill show that mental illness is on the political radar and will not go away. I encourage the House to continue the debate because our recent debates show that this is an issue that we should talk about.”
