default I feel so important lol

I have just got a letter from the House of Commons with regards to laws protecting breastfeeding mums feeding in public. i had wrote to my local MP months ago and have finally got a reply. I am typing this out so might be a few spelling mistakes as i am NAK lol:

Dear helen,
I am writing in response to your letter regarding the rights of mothers to breastfeed their babies in public.

The Government has been very clear that it is entirely unlawful to prevent a woman from breastfeeding in public and mothers who wish to do so have been covered by the Sexual Discrimination Act since 1975. The Government intends to clarify a mother's right to breastfeed in public in the future Single Equality Bill.

However, concerns similar to yours, that a time limit might be placed upon the legal right for mothers to breastfeed, or that maternity rights will only refer to mothers with very young infants, have been expressed by health workers, MP's and in the press. There is an Early Day Motion, EDM 1886, which attempts to ensure that in the future Single Equality Bill there will not be a time limit placed upon the mother's legal right to breastfeed in public:

EDM 1886
BREASTFEEDING IN PUBLIC

Nicholas Winterton - That this House recognises the clear health benefits of breastfeeding; welcomes reports that legislative proposals on rights for women to breastfeed in public may be brought forward later in 2008; is concerned by reports that this right may only extend to the first six months of a child's life; and therefore calls on the Government to support calls by the Royal College of Midwifes for it to bring forward proposals that give mothers the legal right to breastfeed in public, with no time limit on that right.

Therefore, this issue is being recognised by Labour MPs. However unfortunately, as a Minister I am unable to sign any Early Day Motions. Therefore I have written to Ann Keen MP the Minister responsible for maternity matters, on your behalf and I will contact you again when I receive a response.

In the meantime if you have any further questions or comments on this or any other matter please do not hesitate to contact me should you wish to do so.

Best Wishes
Shahid Malik MP

Tell us about yourself : People who have kids by more than 3 different men are SLAGS. They don't give a shit about the welfare of their children, otherwise they would be keeping their bloody legs shut and creating a STABLE environment for their kids, either in a stable relationship or as a single mother - because single mothers are perfectly capable of being fantastic parents. If you want to sleep around use some fucking contraception until you are sure your partner is in it for the long haul, it is not fucking difficult. Kids need stability - they don't need a succession of men coming in and out of their life.
