๐Ÿ›‚ The UK Tory Government continues to oversee absolute chaos in our passport offices.

My team and I have been working tirelessly to support constituents facing passport problems.

Please contact me if you need help & I'll do all I can to support you.

Businesses, agency worker bodies and working people donโ€™t want the Tory Government to scrap the agency worker ban. Itโ€™ll be unworkable. So the Government now picks another unnecessary fight combining attacking Senedd law and eroding legal rights in Wales.

The Tories now face a credible Labour party: a government-in-waiting with a plan to deliver on the countryโ€™s demands.

We will not shy away from that responsibility, duck those challenges or fail to grasp the opportunities our country has.

Merthyr Tydfil & Rhymney is a community steeped in our historical ties with the Armed Forces.

On #ArmedForcesDay2022 I want to thank each & every member of our Armed Forces Personnel, our veterans & forces families.

Thank you for your dedication to our safety. #ArmedForcesWeek

NEW: Inflation up at 9.1% today.

Inflation is pushing family finances to the brink - but the low wage spiral many face isnโ€™t new.

Itโ€™s a result of a decade of Tory mismanagement of our economy.

Labour will build the high wage, high growth, stable inflation economy we deserve.

The Reserves Force play an integral role in protecting the nationโ€™s security at home and overseas, making up approx one sixth of our Armed Forces personnel.

This #ReservesDay I want to thank our reserves in Merthyr Tydfil & Rhymney for the valuable contributions they make.

Bullying can have an awful impact on people and is unacceptable anywhere. No-one, especially young people, should have to go through it alone.

It was a pleasure to meet members of the Nepalese Parliament this morning to talk about devolution.

It's vital parliamentarians from around the world meet and discuss how best we can improve the lives of our citizens, learning from each other's experience and unlocking policies.

Delighted to attend the presentation of the Queens Award for Voluntary Service to the South Wales Police Special Constabulary.

Special Constables make huge contributions, giving their time to help protect our communities.

I give my thanks to these dedicated public servants.

Dodging showers on the #LabourDoorstep this morning in #Fochriw with Cllr Robert Chapman and the @MTR_LabourParty team. Despite the rain, managed to speak with a number of local residents to discuss issues and concerns.

โœŠ Solidarity to everyone on the #DemandBetter march in London today!

The last 12 years of UK Tory Govt has seen food bank use spiral out of control, child & pensioner poverty climb, and worker's rights vandalised.

Only a @UKLabour Govt will sort this mess.

Fantastic to visit the pupils and staff at Ysgol Gymraeg Rhyd-Y-Grug.

The students of class 3&4 have been learning about the Amazon rain forest and they wrote to me about the important role it plays.

Itโ€™s great to see young people so interested in our environment.

Great to visit the community beekeepers of the Merthyr Tydfil and District Naturalist Society at the Bothy in Cyfarthfa Park.
