Madam Speech, we do not hear the word hope very often in this place and it is something that is very important. I would like to make two comments. One is that death is hard, death is very hard, but it does not mean it is without hope. When my sister died it was brutal, it was unfair, but it was life. We brought her out in the old Celtic way with singing and celebration because that is what we do. There is hope in that and hope has to be about compassion and doing what is right.
Second, I would like to ask my hon. colleague about the lack of action she mentioned on the horrific suicide crisis we are facing. Year in, year out we are losing hundreds of young people. We lose young people in my region all the time and it never seems to be a priority. When I hear the Prime Minister talk about losing patience, I think of the patience that has been lost by children as young as nine years old, 10 years old and 11 years old who do not even believe that this country cares about them enough that their lives are worth living.
What does my hon. colleague think we can do to address the horrific hopelessness in so many young people who are giving up?
