That this House welcomes International Stammering Awareness Day on 22 October 2018, which aims to raise awareness and increase understanding of stammering, a speech condition that affects around one in 20 young children and one in 100 adults; recognises individuals and groups of volunteers and professionals who do incredible work helping people who stammer; acknowledges that talking about stammering is one of the best ways to remove the stigma and misunderstanding surrounding the condition, and to improve the lives of those who have a stammer; commits to doing all it can to ensure that people with a stammer are able to have their voice heard in the democratic process; and further commits to ensuring that recruitment practices and employee support for all roles are inclusive of the needs of people who stammer.
