There are over 10 million disabled people in the UK. Disabled people are under-represented in all aspects of public and political life.
Please sign our e-petition to help increase the number of disabled MPs. The e-petition "Allow MPs to serve on a job share basis" has now been published. It reads:
“We the undersigned recognise that for some disabled people (and others), a main barrier to being able to participate in public and political life is that it is not currently possible to job share as a Member of Parliament therefore we ask that the law be changed to allow MPs to serve on a job share basis.”
