Mencap Parliamentary Reception

David Evennett, MP for Bexleyheath and Crayford, is pictured at the Mencap Parliamentary reception on Monday 18 June. The event marked the start of Learning Disability Week and highlighted their police promise campaign on hate crime.

Guests heard from Policing Minister Rt Hon Nick Herbert MP, Met Police Assistant Commissioner Simon Byrne and Mencap Chief Executive Mark Goldring CBE about the “Stand by me” pledge and the Police and Crime Commissioners who will be elected later this year.

Mr Evennett supported “Stand by me” when it was launched last year, writing to the then Borough Commander of Bexley Police.
