On Sunday 15th October I was a guest on BBC Radio 4’s Westminster Hour.

On the show I discussed why I think public sector workers need a real terms pay rise, the importance of Brexit negotiators securing a transition period as Britain leaves the EU, and why the Government needs to pause its rollout of Universal Credit until serious problems with the new benefits system are fixed.

You can listen to the show here.

On Wednesday 11th September I took part in a Brexit debate on Adam Boulton’s All Out Politics show on Sky News.

The Government urgently needs to make progress on the negotiations or the UK risks crashing out without a deal, which would undermine the future of UK citizens living abroad and EU citizens in the UK while hitting businesses with tariffs and red tape.

I sent a letter signed by a cross-party group of 23 MPs from across the East Midlands to Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt and NHS England Chief Executive Simon Stevens, calling on them to stop the closure of children’s heart surgery services at Glenfield Hospital.

It also put pressure on them to urgently set up a meeting between NHS England and University Hospitals Leicester NHS Trust so that Glenfield’s plan to deal with even more surgical cases can be discussed.

While the consultation on NHS England’s plans closed on 17 July, I will keep fighting to save this excellent unit. Click here to read the story on my letter in the Leicester Mercury, read coverage on ITV Central here, and watch me discussing the letter on BBC East Midlands Today here.
