Huge thanks to Cllrs. @GalsworthyErnie & @dgarethrichards for joining me on today's street surgery in #Treharris.

Residents are clear: the UK Tory psychodrama will only deliver more of the same.

It's time for a #GeneralElectionNow so @UKLabour can sort out their mess.

Great visit to @BerryGlobalInc today in #Rhymney

They've been a long-standing employer in Merthyr Tydfil & Rhymney.

They are currently employing as well so please check their website for more details:

Smashing to meet Rowan and Martin at @BikeParkWales to hear about their continuing progress as a popular destination for locals and tourists alike.

Really impressed to hear about their ongoing plans for the future.

Do check out their website ๐Ÿ‘‡

ICYMI: As the cost-of-living crisis deepens I want to make sure Merthyr Tydfil & Rhymney residents are supported as much as possible.

@DwrCymruWelshWater offer a discounted rate for parents of kids on Free School Meals.

The 'HelpU' tariff could save you ยฃ230 on water bills.

Thank you to Merthyr Tydfil & Rhymney CLP & affiliates for voting to re-select me as your candidate for the next #GeneralElection.

We have shown what an optimistic, honest & progressive @WelshLabour Govt can achieve in Wales. Now to deliver that for the UK.

๐Ÿ“ฐ READ: Residents of Merthyr Tydfil & Rhymney can read my weekly round-up here.

Hope everyone has a good weekend!

๐Ÿ“บWATCH: A key priority for MPs is dealing with constituency casework, but delays across multiple Government departments, like DWP & the Passport Office, impede our ability to support constituents.

Action must be taken to address this disrespectful behaviour.

The long awaited and desperately needed Gambling White Paper has now been delayed for the 4th time after an 18 month wait. I hope that whoever prevails in the leadership contest prioritises implementing the reforms as a matter of urgency. People's lives are at risk. Do not delay.

Great to be with @WelshLabour friends this evening as we look to the future.

We don't need a change of Tory leader, we need a change of government in Westminster.

Keir's path to Downing Street runs through Wales.

We can achieve so much together in power.

After months of campaigning with fellow Labour MPs, the Govโ€™t have today announced that they will bring forward Bonus Protection for the Miners' Pension Scheme.

This will ensure that miners pensions increase by around 11%, rather than 4%, this Autumn.

๐Ÿ“บ WATCH: My recent visit to Ysgol Rhyd Y Grug showed that our kids are leading the way on tackling #ClimateChange.

I asked the Minister what lessons he could learn from their action to prevent deforestation and when the UK Tory Govt will follow @UKLabour's lead on #NetZero
