Today, I held the Chair of the Child Safeguarding Review Panel and the representatives of Solihull and Bradford Councils to account for the appalling failures in children's services that contributed to the murders of Arthur Labinjo-Hughes and Star Hobson in 2020
@CommonsEd

🏥Happy to Visit Pall Mall GP surgery and to talk to the doctors about what improvements need to be made

👩‍⚕️I support the new EConsult system as patients will be seen to quicker, keeping Southend healthier

💊But it is important that those without web access are supported

🏦BANKING CLOSURES 🏦

Thank you very much @BBCEssex and @IanPuckey for opportunity to talk @PostOffice Community Banking Hubs. The most successful model in UK is next door in #Rochford developed by local #banking 🦸🏼‍♂️ #PaulThurgood. This is the way forward @LeighOnSeacom

Even although I listen a lot in my job, meeting @samaritans today @LeighTCEvents Folk Festival in @LeighOnSeacom was humbling & inspiring. The 20,000 #Samaritan volunteers have been listening to others for over 60 years so that no-one has to face life alone. #respect

Thank you @LeighTCEvents & all the wonderful volunteers for a fabulous #LeighFolkFestival in @LeighOnSeacom Library gardens & elsewhere. Fantastic music, food, dance, stalls, merch, poetry & #Rossi ice-cream! Amazing day!

Leigh @ECFRS firefighters doing fab job raising money for @EHAAT_ air ambulance & charities at today’s @LeighOnSeacom Fire Station Open Day. Children loving huge bouncy 🏰, dunk a 👨‍🚒, fire engine 🚒 & police car 🚔 to go in. We are fortunate to have such a dedicated local team

Lovely afternoon with #SAFE at Silver Jubilee Event at #Garons Park. SAFE do wonderful work in ⁦@southend_city⁩ to support families with #aspergers syndrome. #aspergers

Visited @LancasterSch today for #LearningDisabilityWeek✏️Fantastic to see the preparation the young adults are getting to ready them for life 🏫 Facilities and activities for pupils - simply amazing. Fortunate to present the students with awards at their assembly 🏆#AnnaFirthMP

🥳🎭Phenomenal production of #Barnum this evening ⁦@SouthendTheatre⁩ by @ptcsouthend⁩. You must GO! Tickets still available for Friday & Saturday - amazing evening 👍👏

Today we removed 23 foreign criminals from the UK with combined sentences of more than 72 years, including convictions for rape, indecent assault of a minor and drugs offences.

The Borders Act will make it easier to deport foreign criminals to make our communities safer.

Ahead of Armed Forces Day on Saturday the Mayor & Mayoress have raised the @ArmedForcesDay flag at Porters Civic House which will also be illuminated red,white & blue for the remainder of the week. @SouthendCityC @westborokevin

🚸To raise awareness for #LearningDisabilityWeek2022 we visited St Christophers Special school recently🎒Was fantastic to see the facilities the school provides for the children and the amazing care shown from the teachers🧑‍🎓Proud to have this school in @mysouthend

🌊Good to speak with @RoyalLifeSaving for Drowning Prevention Week. As a seaside city this is really important locally!

🛟We recently helped fund a new engine for
@ChalkwellLG to ensure they can effectively look after people enjoying our waters🛥️

#AnnaFirthMP #DPW

Thank you @BBCEssex for highlighting the need for @EPSouthend to be provided with new, electronic, state-of-the-art knife 🔪 poles in @mysouthend - it is ESSENTIAL these are in place by the summer holiday period & phase 5 of Operation Union.

An important contribution by @Anna_Firth to today's #pharmacy debate in @UKParliament

"Upskilling and funding pharmacy can help take pressure off GPs, ambulances and hospital."

🚂Today's Rail strikes have caused unacceptable levels of disruption to people throughout the country

👩‍🎓@AQA and @PearsonEdexcel are not accepting the strikes as mitigation for exams

🎓No student should have their education disrupted like this

❗️Profoundly condemn the rail strikes we are seeing. The disruption caused is going to affect thousands of commuters and our students🚆Can we please stay off the railways to allow key workers like our nurses and police officers to effectively care for us🧑‍⚕️
@c2c_Rail @grantshapps

Success and enjoyment at university starts with good mental health, which is why I made it a priority to get students the best possible mental support. But for years the gaps between university and NHS services have been too wide. Today, @GillianKeegan and I are changing that.

Just spoke in the House of Commons about knife crime and violence in Southend, and the work Essex police force are doing to help this issue🚔
We have to make a change, and I want to start with electronic knife poles before the holidays🏖️

Happy Armed Forces Week!💂

Our Armed Forces do so much for us in protecting the UK both home and away🇬🇧

It is the least we can do to show our support for our troops who sacrifice themselves to keep us all safe! 🪖

☺️Another busy week in Parliament and Southend!☺️

🌞I hope everyone enjoys the sun this weekend!🌞

👇Have a look at some of the highlights of my week👇

☀️ Another fantastic surgery in sunny (27 degrees and counting!) Southend today.

➡️ Genuine pleasure to meet some of my awesome constituents from across Leigh, Westcliff, Eastwood and beyond.

Since I launched #GrowthGateway at #AIC2022 this January, >150 African & UK businesses have received support. The UK 🇬🇧 is committed to being Africa’s trade partner of choice. Here’s how #GrowthGateway is supporting two-way UK-Africa #trade & #investment

Keeping residents and children safe in Southend West is one of my key priorities and so today, on the anniversary of the death of Jo Cox MP, I attended and spoke at the Newham Knife Crime Event in the House of Commons focusing on both knife crime and county lines
@JoCoxFoundation

Very proud to welcome our first work experience student to Parliament. Maddie is a credit to both Southend High School for Girls 6th Form and Chalkwell 🥳

💔Since first meeting Hollie Dance in April, following Archie Battersbee’ s terrible accident at home in Southend West, I have been inspired by the strength of her motherhood and the bravery she has shown during the most difficult circumstances any parent could go through 🙏

🗣 It was great to see @Anna_Firth at today's #RebuildGP parliamentary drop-in event. She and @DrRachelWardGP talked about how MPs can address the ongoing primary care crisis. #RGPatParliament

Now it's degree apprenticeships. @Anna_Firth asks if there's a need for a UCAS system for degree apprenticeships.

@michelledonelan wants to double again the number of degree apprenticeships, but reminds MPs that degree apps are already on UCAS.

. @Anna_Firth says the T Level placement requirement is challenging for small employers and wants to know if more flexibilities could be considered.

@michelledonelan says more flexibilities would be "damaging" because the 45 day placement is a key feature of T Levels.

🚨Great to hear that @pritipatel thinks @EPSouthend is a national success story! Delighted Operation Grip was such a success and will be rolled out nationally

👮Our local officers work incredibly hard and it’s great to hear them being praised so highly!

https://www.echo-news.co.uk/news/20209720.southend-police-praised-priti-patel-crime-crackdown/

To help British businesses to flourish and grow, and help people to beat the cost of living crisis through high wage jobs. I am rocket-boosting Degree Apprenticeships with £8m extra funding - producing work ready grads that can earn while they learn.

💸Access to cash is vital for so many businesses, charities and local people, especially the elderly.

🏦Sadly in Southend West we have lost too many of our banks, and @NatWest_Help and @BarclaysUK have recently announced that they are closing their local branches

Wonderful to meet
#HelenHurford our @Conservatives candidate @TivHonTories by-election on June 23rd. Having seen Helen in action there is no doubt she is a💥BRILLIANT💥candidate & will definitely deliver for #Tiverton & #Honiton #VoteConservative

🇫🇰 40 years ago, British Armed Forces liberated the Falkland Islands.

🇫🇰 Today we remember those who sacrificed their lives to defend the Islanders' right to determine their own future.
