I would like to wish everybody Dydd Santes Dwynwen Hapus, as today is the day of the Welsh patron saint of love, and to say that "love is love" whoever you are and wherever you are in the world is very, very important.

I would like to confirm my support of the report. I’d like to take this opportunity to speak because in the UK parliament I'm the co-chair of the All Party Parliamentary group for Medical Cannabis under Prescription.
