Norwich North Mp, @NorwichChloe has shared her views on the current nationwide rail strikes.
Families are facing global cost of living pressures. Labour's response? Backing today's rail strikes.
Their union friends admit it will cost families, yet Labour won't condemn it.

It was great to accompany @SOMNews and see how the occupational health teams at @GSTTnhs and @TfL are prioritising the wellbeing of their staff. Positive physical and mental health is good for business as healthier workplaces produce stronger financial results
