The Public Accounts Committee published a report this week on the Government's plan for its long-term environmental goals. The climate emergency requires urgency. The Government must move on from aspirational words and start taking the hard decisions. I'll continue pressing. Read the report here.

The Public Accounts Committee also published a report on Free School Meals and called out the Government for being surprisingly unconcerned on whether the free school meals contractor was profiting at taxpayers’ expense. Read a summary of the report here.

Also this week I held a creative industries roundtable with the Shadow Minister for the Creative Industries. See my round-up below for further details.

The virus is continuing to spread at high levels. It's important we remain vigilant and stay at home as much as possible. See here for the latest COVID data in Hackney.
