That the Parliament celebrates ME Awareness Week, which ran from 7 to 13 May 2018; acknowledges that people with ME, their families and ME organisations worked hard during the week to highlight the lived experience of people with ME/CFS; notes that many people with ME attended a reception at the Parliament on 9 May, which was organised by Action for ME and sought to raise awareness of the condition, and thanks all those with ME who attended this and other events around the country to share their stories.
