    This week, Annette Brooke, MP for Mid Dorset and North Poole, met with the UK's largest hearing loss charity, Action on Hearing Loss (formerly RNID), at the Houses of Parliament to discuss how NHS cuts and increasing demand are forcing two out of five NHS audiology departments to cut core services.

    Hearing loss affects an estimated one in six people in Mid Dorset and North Poole and, with an ageing population, the number of people who need help with their hearing loss is set to soar in coming years. Annette attended the parliamentary event, held at Westminster, to discuss the charity's research findings and further information about the state of hearing loss services for her constituents.

    Relentless breeding of dogs in dirty, squalid conditions takes place in neighbourhoods across the UK, so Battersea has launched a major campaign calling for a clamp down on the many undercover dog breeders that profit from the cruel treatment of these animals.
