MPs Carol Monaghan, Nicky Morgan, Kelvin Hopkins & Stephen Pound secured an M.E. debate in the House of Commons on Thursday 24th January 2019. The ME Action Network have uploaded a copy of the debate on YouTube & the transcript is available at Hansard.

The Scottish Parliament also discussed M.E.  during their Public Petitions Committee. Jeane Freeman said, "To people living with M.E. – I believe you. I believe that this disease is a life-limiting disease in terms of the quality of your life, I hear what you are saying to us and your experience does matter to me.” The Swindon Advertiser reported that the Health Secretary pledges more support for people with ME.
