In the Spring Statement debate I questioned the Chancellor about the impact of the Government’s approach to Brexit. It’s clear the Government cannot claim it is acting in the interests of the country because analysis has revealed all of its options for Brexit will damage our long-term economic growth.

On Friday I met with John Kemp from the Alzheimer’s Society in the East Midlands. We discussed how they were supporting patients and their families here in Leicester West. And John also told me about the charity campaigns they are running in Dementia Action week later in the year. 

The meeting followed on from an event in Parliament I held earlier in the week. Dementia is the UK’s biggest killer and I will support the work they do here in Leicester West and also right across the country in finding ways to tackle dementia and support sufferers.

On Friday 19th January, I will be supporting my colleague Karen Buck MP’s Homes Fitness for Human Habitation Private Members’ Bill.

There are 102,000 rented homes in the East Midlands that have problems posing an immediate risk to a person’s health, which could include damp or dangerous electrical wiring.

Karen’s Bill would require landlords to make sure their properties are fit for human habitation, and if this isn’t done, allow tenants to take their landlord to court.

Everyone should have the right to a decent home and tenants need powers to challenge their landlords when their health is put at risk by dangerous accommodation.

Read more information on the Bill here.

On 10th January I gave a speech on the winter crisis in the NHS and why the Government must deliver a bold, 10-year strategy for health and social care services that has cross-party support.

You can watch my speech here, or read the whole debate here.

Earlier in the week, I questioned the Health Minister on who would be leading the Government’s work to reform social care.
