We wish to give a welcome to Debbie Abrahams as the new Labour Shadow Minister for Disabled People.
She has a thorough knowledge of the issues facing disabled people, having previously been a member of the Work and Pensions Committee.
This is a committee comprised of backbench MPs who have the task of holding the Department of Work and Pensions to account.
Debbie has been outstanding in her role on the committee, doing more than any other MP to hold slippery Iain Duncan Smith, his hench-ministers and civil servants to account over their miss-treatment of disabled people. She has done this with intelligence and tenacity, skills that will serve her, and disabled people, well in her new role.
Below are some video clips of Debbie at work.
