Sir George cancels engagements to back Autism Bill
25 Feb 2009
Sir George has cancelled his constituency engagements on Friday to go to Westminster to vote for a Private Members Bill to help people suffering from Autism.

"My colleague Cheryl Gillan came top of the ballot for Private Members Bills, and has chosen to introduce a bill requiring local authorities to provide proper services for children and adults with autism. I had hoped that the Government would support this Bill and it would get an unopposed second reading. We could then have considered it in committee and looked at changes the Government want to make."
"I now understand that the Government wants to kill the Bill on Friday, and Cheryl needs 100 MP's to make sure that doesn't happen. Many constituents have contacted me about the Bill and although Friday is a day when I am active in the constituency, I have cancelled my engagements to head back to Westminster."
