The MST is pleased to be joined by Katie Shooter from the Home Office who will provide an update. This will be a question and answer session and we would request that you submit questions in advance by emailing MST@parliament.uk. Time permitting, we will open the floor for additional questions
The House of Commons Library has produced a new guide for MPs and their staff to help them to assist their constituents: ‘A short guide to tenants’ rights when living in damp and mouldy homes and Government action to address this issue.’
The House of Commons Library has produced a briefing on help with energy bills for businesses, voluntary sector and public sector organisations.
This briefing provides information on support with energy bills for non-domestic customers, including businesses, public sector organisations and charities. It covers help with rising energy prices, and support to install energy-saving measures and low carbon technologies.
Other sources that answer frequent questions are provided, as well as links to other Library briefings, which cover some of the schemes in more detail. Where complex issues are raised it may be more appropriate to refer constituents to specialist bodies and organisations or to a solicitor if legal advice is sought.
Information for anyone attempting to gain access their own, or somebody else’s, medical records.
Accessing health records is now always as simple as putting in a Subject Access Request under the Data Protection Act 2018. Sometimes, other legislation also comes into play depending upon the circumstances.
