Liz asks for donations to Leicester foodbanks

Please, if you can, donate to your local foodbank. Since the rollout of Universal Credit began in Leicester, the number of people going to foodbanks in our city has gone up by 20%. With Christmas just around the corner, many people – including families with children – will be really struggling. To find out where your nearest foodbank is, ask your local councillor at leicester.gov.uk/councillors or get in touch with me and my office. Thanks to Action Homeless Leicester and Wonky Veg Boxes

Since the rollout of Universal Credit began in Leicester, the number of people going to foodbanks has gone up by 20%. With Christmas just around the corner, many people will really struggle. So please, if you can, donate to your local foodbank – not just over Christmas but throughout the year.

To find out where your nearest foodbank is, ask your local councillor at leicester.gov.uk/councillors or get in touch with me and my office at 42 Narborough Road on liz.kendall.mp {at} parliament(.)uk.

Liz interviewed on Withdrawal Agreement

Watch: The Government’s Withdrawal Agreement is not what the British people were promised and is bad for the country. I will be voting against it

Posted by Liz Kendall on Thursday, 15 November 2018

After two years of chaos and confusion the Government has final published its Withdrawal Agreement from the EU.

The agreement fails to deliver on the promises that were made during the Referendum. No one voted for less control, or to be poorer.

You can watch my me discussing the Withdrawal Agreement on Sky News here and listen to me on BBC Radio 4’s Westminster Hour here.

On 12 November, I was proud to support calls for a fairer asylum system at the Sanctuary in Parliament event organised by City of Sanctuary and Asylum Matters. It is essential that people who come to the UK after fleeing war, torture and persecution find safety and are treated with dignity and respect.

I was honoured to be able to host the Green Apple Awards in Parliament again this year. I’ve supported The Green Organisation over many years because of the hugely important work it does to highlight and support environmental best practice around the world.

This year, I presented the Champion of Champions award to company Eaton for its work installing Europe’s largest energy storage system using new and second-life electric vehicle batteries. The project provides a sustainable and more reliable energy source to the Johan Cruijff Arena in Holland and the local power grid.
