Hull MP tells Commons about state of services in Hull for children with autism

Hull North MP Diana Johnson made the speech below in her adjourment debate on the Diagnosis of children on the autism spectrum in Hull.

Diana Johnson (Kingston upon Hull North) (Lab): First, I would like to thank you, Mr Speaker, for selecting for the Adjournment debate this evening the important subject of the unacceptable length of time families in Hull are having to wait for a diagnosis of autism for their children. It is an issue I have grown increasingly concerned about over the course of the past year.
