Science Funding

In October 2010, Pamela Nash signed Early Day Motion 707: Government Funding for UK Science. The motion stated that the house "supports the view of the President of the Royal Society that short-term austerity risks undermining the UK's future science base", noted that other countries were investing in science to promote economic growth, and "believes that investment in basic scientific research throughout the UK is vital if the commercial benefits of developing new technology are to be broadly spread".[1]

Nomination of David Tredinnick for Health Committee Chair

In 2014 Ms Nash was one of 20 MPs to nominate David Tredinnick (an outspoken advocate of alternative medicine) for the position of Chair of the Health Select Committee[2][3]. It is not known if Ms Nash subsequently voted for Mr Tredinnick, who only received nine votes in the anonymous ballot.

Same-Sex Marriage

Pamela Nash voted in favour of the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill at both its second reading in February 2013[4] and its third reading in May 2013[5].
