Creative industry workers and businesses have been hit with the double whammy of Brexit and COVID-19. I'm organising a virtual creative industries roundtable with the shadow minister to discuss these issues and feed in examples to press the Government. 

The creative industries roundtable will take place on Wednesday 3 February at 4pm. Please email for further details and to register. 

In my round-up I also discuss the Public Accounts Committee hearing on COVID vaccines and the Chancellor's statement on Monday where he, again, refused to help those who've been locked out of all Government support since the start of the pandemic.

I also want to give a shout out to our shop key workers who work with the public day in, day out. They work so that we all can buy food to put on our tables. Thank you.

COVID-19 infection rates are still very high. See here for the latest COVID data in Hackney. It is vital we continue to stay at home so we can protect the NHS and save lives.
