Meeting with Charity, 'Community Security Trust'

Earlier this week, I met with Mark Levy from the Jewish Leadership Council and representatives from the Community Security Trust (CST), a charity that protects the Jewish community from terrorism and antisemitism.

Statement on the Recent Events in Parliament

We had a rather long night in the Chamber yesterday and I wanted to give an update on some of the events that took place.

Have a look at the video above for my comments on what happened.

Meeting with Ruth Ingledew from AKW

Thanks Ruth Ingledew of AKW for spending time with me on Friday where we discussed disability and social care policy.

I know you are hugely appreciated in the constituency for all the work you do to help people stay in their homes and live independent lives as long as possible.

Droitwich Saltfest

Another wonderful weekend of events in Worcestershire, the highlight of which is the Saltfest in Droitwich which was held on Saturday.

Meeting with the Health Secretary

Amidst the ongoing events in London earlier this month the Chancellor, Sajid Javid, not only set the 2020/21 spending allocations for Government departments but allocated substantial additional investment into our vital public services – not least our NHS, schools and police forces.

Statement on the SO24 Motion and the Brexit Bill

I was disappointed that the Government lost control of the Order Paper last night.

Yesterday MPs voted on a motion which meant Parliamentary time has been set aside to debate a Bill which could jeopardise the Government’s commitment to leaving the European Union on 31 October.

Comment on Government's Announcement on School Funding

I welcome the Prime Minister’s announcement of a record £14 billion investment in England’s schools between now and 2022/23, as well as plans by the Department for Education to boost teacher salaries to at least £30,000 from 2022.
