Cambridge MP. @UKLabour Shadow Minister. Love music at @kettlesyard, sport (@CambridgeUtdFC ST holder) & outdoors. For reply email: firstname.lastname@example.org
I’ve been talking to the @CambridgeIndy about my Summer reading. What’s on your list?
Looking for a new role? Come and work in my busy Westminster office. http://www.w4mpjobs.org/JobDetails.aspx?jobid=85112
We’ve got one of the fastest growing regions in the country and the BBC are turning away from it. My message to the BBC: please reverse your planned cuts to regional broadcasting in Cambridge!
Great to see @CambridgeLabour at the brilliant @CambridgePride today - cheer amid the national chaos!
Today I questioned the Transport Secretary about the Government's commitment to vital rail improvements in the East of England.
His lukewarm response was not good enough.
The East of England has the fastest growing population in England and Wales.
And it is time the Government provided Cambridge with the resources we need to support our rising population.
I'm delighted to support the @readingagency in encouraging children in Cambridge to sign up to the 2022 #SummerReadingChallenge. 📖🔖
This week in Parliament I called on the government to help end the suffering of farmed animals by stopping the use of cages on our farms.
It's time we #EndTheCageAge
Every trip to the shops, prices up, while government does nothing.
They have no plan to help people through the toughest times in memory.
Thank you to @unisontheunion for organising this important event.
I’m proud to support their campaign to introduce mandatory ethnicity pay gap reporting.
The rising price of UK chickens opens the door for more poultry produced to lower environmental and animal welfare standards to be imported from abroad.
It's time the Government got a grip!
Had a fantastic visit to the Cambridge sorting office to see their exciting new fleet of electric post vans! 📮⚡️🌲🌍
Yesterday, in the #QueensSpeech debate I stood up for British universities.
They need certainty on the future of collaborative funding with global partners.
Not pointless division to stoke up yet more harmful culture wars.
Today I called on Michael Gove to take action to help Cambridge leaseholders, who despite living in safe homes, are still being charged excessive insurance premiums.
He promised the situation will improve - I will be holding him to his word.
93% of our submissions were judged to be either ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’, making us the leading university that covers the broad range of disciplines from STEM to the arts, humanities and social sciences. #REF2021 https://twitter.com/timeshighered/status/1524527278880956417
REF 2021: Quality ratings hit new high in expanded assessment – four in five outputs judged to be either ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’ #REF2021 https://bit.ly/3FEeyyY
Great meeting with five @MarshallADG engineering and aerospace apprentices in Parliament this week.
The future of British aerospace is in some very capable hands ✈️
The legacy of the cladding crisis is still with us, with many leaseholders in Cambridge still facing staggering insurance premiums despite living in safe homes.
Leaseholders deserve answers!
Great to meet with the League Against Cruel sports today, to call for an end to snaring.
It is deeply sad to learn of the passing of Bob Blizzard.
He campaigned tirelessly for the people of Waveney and will be sorely missed.
Congratulations to @CambridgeLabour ! I look forward to working with elected and re-elected Councillors as part of the City's administration to make Cambridge the best small City!

Jim is spot on. The Government has no plan to promote our food security or address the cost of living crisis.
The government just doesn’t get it.
Food security is about taking people out of poverty, ensuring adults and children have access to affordable and quality food.
The last @UKLabour govt did exactly that, and @Keir_Starmer’s vision is one of security, prosperity and respect.
Privacy scandals as well as the use of algorithms in allocating exam grades have badly dented public trust in data.
But it is essential we rebuild that trust – because the prize is great.

Great to meet with @guidedogs (and in particular Kelsey🦮🐾) to support their #AllThingsEqual campaign.
They are raising awareness of the challenges faced by children with visual impairments in the education system, to get them the support they need to succeed.
Boris Johnson is the Prime Minister. He made the laws and then he broke them. He must do the honourable thing and resign.
Not only did the Prime Minister break his own laws, he then lied to Parliament about it.
The two most senior figures in Gov have such contempt for the British people & institutions that they think the rules don’t apply to them. Now an important test for the Con Party - either they believe in our country & laws, or they believe solely in their entitlement to rule.
The cost of the family food shop is rising week in, week out. It’s a real and pressing issue for millions of people in our country.
The Government’s welfare policies are a disgrace and should be a cause of shame.
Cambridge is a great City for Environmentally friendly movement. If you need to get around Cambridge my message is ‘if not by bike then certainly by bus’. I’ve been working hard to encourage bus travel by bringing users and providers together.
Some great responses on the Door step today in Cambridge! A busy day for me in the City today …. 🚎
As I start another week in London I wanted to share with you some of the great things I get to see happening in Cambridge. It makes me think our City is quite possibly the best small city in the world! ✅ Tech and buses 🧬 DNA Sequencing 💵 Living Wage Employers 🚲
I spoke to @itvanglia about the Chancellor’s mini-Budget. He’s out of touch with the scale of the bills people are facing. We need real action not tinkering around the edges.
Fantastic to meet with the @BumblebeeTrust today.
I am pledging to #beethechange to help make Cambridge more bumblebee friendly🐝🌻

Today in Parliament, I called for comprehensive reforms to help improve the taxi and private hire sector for both drivers and customers 🚕🚦
I questioned a Transport Minister on whether the Government have any idea what impact the pandemic has had on taxi and private hire drivers.
Clearly they don't.
"I’m really concerned that the Government’s failing to deliver on its manifesto promises on a whole range of animal welfare issues."
Thank you to @DanielZeichner (Shadow Food and Farming Minister) for calling for legislation to improve farmed animal welfare.
A decade ago the Tory/Lib Dem coalition destroyed our regional structures. Yesterday I told @itvanglia now is the time to rebuild!
Today I spoke to @BBCRadio4 about the importance of growing our own food in Britain to tackle the climate crisis. 🚜👩🌾🌿
@DanielZeichner on @BBCFarmingToday this morning called for more food to be grown in Britain to tackle price pressures resulting from the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the climate and nature emergencies.
Today in Parliament, it was fantastic to meet with @UNISONEastern care workers, who are campaigning for better working conditions in the sector.
Fantastic to meet so many young researchers from Cambridge today at the STEM for Britain competition. Lots of impressive work covering everything from black holes to bees! 🌌🐝
Cambridge MP calls for ‘full force of sanctions’ against oligarchs at march for Ukraine https://www.cambridgeindependent.co.uk/news/cambridge-mp-calls-for-full-force-of-sanctions-against-oli-9243276/
Today I signed Mr @CommonsSpeaker’s book of solidarity for Ukraine that will be sent to Ruslan Stefanchuk, Chairman of the Ukrainian Parliament.
I pledged to extend the hand of friendship in Ukraine’s hour of need, on behalf of all of us in Cambridge.
We turn 10 today. Happy birthday to us.
While we wait to see if we out-trend Lady Gaga again, here's Eben talking about a decade of Raspberry Pi:
Today in Parliament, I expressed solidarity with people fleeing from the war in Ukraine 🇺🇦.
And asked the Home Secretary, with 1.7 million cases of anti-social behaviour reported this year, where have the Police Community Support Officers gone?
It is disappointing that an important opportunity to reset student and Higher Education funding has been missed. Under the Government proposals announced today, students will pay more, universities will get less, and social mobility will be capped. #Augar
🚨Our chair @DanielZeichner MP's response to the government’s announcement on funding for post-18 education #Augar 👇
I will be joining constituents virtually today, where possible, due to Storm Dudley - I encourage all to take only essential journeys and stay safe!
Our #StrikeFromHome schedule for 18 Feb is now live https://www.ucu.cam.ac.uk/update-no-in-person-pickets-tomorrow-strikefromhome-instead/ *No in-person pickets* Join us for a rally with @DanielZeichner at 12 noon. Lots of activities inc. teachouts from 10am
The Prime Minister must bring this pantomime to an end. Sue Gray's report confirms that numerous Downing Street events are being investigated by the police. This is leaving Government paralysed at a time when people are about to face a cost-of-living-crisis - it's got to stop.
Today on Holocaust Memorial Day, we remember the millions of people who were murdered and persecuted by the Nazis.
We must learn from these dark days and stand united against antisemitism and hatred.
Today in Parliament I praised the brilliant job done by taxi drivers right across the country 🚖🚦.
A big thank you to the @TheLTDA for all the excellent work they do in the sector.
Today in a debate on the East of England, I raised the importance of local TV news in building regional identity – the Government’s attacks on the BBC are unacceptable and could be deeply damaging for the East.
