A debate has erupted over the ban on a British MP who breastfeeds a three-month-old baby from coming to Parliament with the child. The woman MP has complained that if this attitude continues, it will lead to problems in future. The name of these MPs of the Labor Party is Stella Kreezy. When he was stopped from entering the house, his son was sleeping in his lap.
Parliament official mailed
The incident happened on Tuesday. Stella arrived at Parliament with son Pip. She wanted to participate in the discussion of the House, but was stopped citing rules. Later, an official of Parliament mailed him. It was told that due to the rules, she cannot sit in the house with the child. Stella objected to this. A few more lawmakers supported Stella. Stella has been assured that these rules will be reviewed in future.
House of Commons Speaker Lindsay Hoyle told MPs – I am not aware of any officer stopping Stella. Stella had campaigned to give full maternity cover to women parliamentarians.
Prime Minister also supported
Prime Minister Boris Johnson has also talked about improving the rules. Johnson’s wife is also going to be the mother of a second child. However, Johnson also said that the matter would be decided by the House of Commons. The British Prime Minister’s spokesman said- We want to make and run the House modern and in terms of this century.
Despite the ban, the tradition of bringing children to the Parliament
Despite the ban in the British Parliament, there has been a tradition of bringing children. Former Liberal Democrat Joe Swinson was the first woman lawmaker to bring a child to the House for the first time in 2018. Labor MP Alex Johns also tweeted that in 2019, Speaker Hawley had approved him to bring the child along and breastfeed him in Parliament. He said – Stella is still breastfeeding son Pip, so she should be allowed to come to Parliament with the child. It is believed that Law Minister Dominic Robb may also support Stella as he has raised this issue before.
