This week I continued to press the Government on freelancers, the self-employed, and small businesses falling through the gaps of Government support schemes. See me raise these concerns in the Finance Bill debate here.
I also spoke in the Fire Safety Bill debate, again raising issues around cladding. This needs to be a priority, even during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Government must do better. See here.
The Public Accounts Committee returned virtually this week. We quizzed the Department of Culture, Media, and Sport and the Gambling Commission on support for problem gamblers and the impact of the current lockdown restrictions.
And to mark May Day today, I want to thank all our key workers in Hackney who are helping to keep our country going.
