Liam Fox please resign as Patron of Mencap North Somerset

Liam Fox please resign as Patron of Mencap North Somerset

We call on Liam Fox to resign as Patron of Mencap's North Somerset branch.

Why is this important?

Mencap opposes the Employment and Support Allowance cuts. It is not acceptable for an MP who promotes himself as patron of North Somerset branch of Mencap to vote in favour of cutting the incomes of the people that Mencap represents.

Part 2 of the Capability for Work questionnaire specifically covers activities that the people who Mencap supports will be finding difficult.
