PMQs: Asking if the Prime Minister will commission national enquiry

Today I asked the Prime Minister Theresa May a Question. Adverse childhood experiences include sexual abuse, domestic violence, parental separation and living with an alcoholic to name but a few.

According to Public Health England an adult who experienced four or more of these during childhood is severely at risk of mental and physical health problems, suicide, incarceration and violent tendencies.

I asked if the Prime Minister will commission national enquiry into this – to not only enable social mobility but help us transform thousands of lives.
