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.

I gave a speech in the Budget debate on 22nd November, where I warned the Chancellor had completely failed to address the biggest challenges facing people living in Leicester West. The Government only has itself to blame for the disastrous economic outlook, and its damaging approach to Brexit looks set to make life much harder for my constituents.

On 7th September I spoke in the debate about the Government’s EU Withdrawal Bill. The Bill transfers huge powers to Ministers over issues that are vital to people’s lives, like maternity and paternity leave, holidays and environmental standards. The Brexit Secretary claims that the Government will not use these powers to make major policy changes, which begs the question: why include them in the first place?
