My week began on Monday with moving testimony from a Holocaust survivor at Holocaust Memorial Day. It was a timely reminder that we must stand up to anti-Semitism wherever we see it.

This week I also challenged the Prime Minister over the GP shortages crisis and the health minister over delays in the breast cancer screening programme.

I was also confirmed as the Chair of the Public Accounts Committee. I’m looking forward to taking up the reins again and challenging the Government over how it spends your money.

See me discuss this and more in my new weekly round-up.

See me discuss this and more in my new weekly round-up.

Today I voted against the Withdrawal Agreement Bill, which:

❌Weakens workers’ rights, consumer and environmental protections
❌ Scraps legal protections for refugee children
❌ Paves the way for a no deal Brexit.

This is what the Tories can do when they have a big majority.

See me discuss why only Labour will give the public a final say on Brexit, invest properly in our public services, and put the climate emergency top of the agenda.

The PM is up to his tricks again. He is trying to bounce Parliament into passing his Brexit deal without proper scrutiny. Scrutinising Brexit cannot and should not be done on the fly.

See me discuss this as well as HMRC’s mishandling of tax credits. Also in an upcoming session the Public Accounts Committee will be challenging government officials over Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) funding so please let me know if you have any experiences you’d like to share.
