What is an Early Day Motion EDM?

A:

Early Day Motions (EDMs) are formal motions submitted for debate in the House of Commons. Realistically very few EDMs are ever debated and are a mechanism for drawing attention to an event or cause. MPs register their support by signing individual motions. Visit the Parliament website to find out more about EDMs or view previous motions.

You can see which EMDs Helen has signed recently here. As a frontbench MP Helen was unable to sign EDMs but since stepping down from the Shadow DWP team Helen has signed a number of EDMs.
