Unfortunately, a problem with our camera means that our film of Seema Chandwani cuts out immediately before the very end of her speech.  We have almost the entirety of Seema’s speech, but apologise for this short unintentional edit.  Our thanks to the audience members who supplied  us with the film of Claudia Webbe and Naomi Wimborne-Idrissi.
