๐Ÿ—Extending safeguards on steel is welcome news but the Govt needs to go further. Yesterday I called on them to work with partners and BEIS to bring forward a green steel deal

Remember Lee Anderson? The Tory MP and bogus chef who says you can eat your tea on 30p.

Now heโ€™s trying to silence women for telling the truth about the Toriesโ€™ appalling 1.3% rape conviction record.

No-one is going to stop us standing up for victims.

๐Ÿ“š I was excited to chat to the @readingagency today and to hear about the 2022 #SummerReadingChallenge which is running in partnership with @sciencemuseum

Bang on from @AngelaRayner in today's #PMQs:

" this rate by 2030 a million more people will be using food banks. How many more people will be pushed into poverty by his Prime Minister before he says enough is enough?"

It's time this government got a grip!

Labourโ€™s commitment to NATO is unshakable. As the Madrid Summit for NATOโ€™s next Strategic Concept begins today, we need this 10 year plan to spell out how the Alliance will respond to increasing threats to our security โ€“ a thread ๐Ÿ‘‡

If you live in Newport and donโ€™t pay by your Council Tax Direct Debit you will need to apply for the ยฃ150 Cost-of-Living support (aka the Council Tax rebate) - and the deadline is September 30th.


๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’šThere are lots of lovely events planned for July to celebrate the fact that we have Hope - the #Lego Suffragette with us for the month.

Get involved and help us to raise funds for @statue4LR

Great to catch up with the #Gwent Association of Retired Headteachers in Parliament this week alongside @RuthNewportWest @NickTorfaen @WayneDavid_MP & @BlaenauGwentMP.

Lots of interesting questions & discussions had - and we were of course all on our best behaviour!

If youโ€™re around on Saturday, why not come along and say Helรด to Hope - the life size Lego suffragette thatโ€™s in Newport for all of July.
Weโ€™ll be at @RiverfrontArts from 10am.

#lego #Newport #PortHour @statue4LR

Today, on #ArmedForcesDay we thank our Armed Forces for keeping us safe and for their service on the front line.

A Labour government would make sure our veterans get a better deal with fair access to the housing and the services they deserve.

๐ŸŒนWakefield is Labourโ€™s first by-election gain from the Tories since 2012

๐ŸŒนThis swing of 12.7% would see Labour win an overall majority at a General Election

๐ŸŒนOur best result in Wakefield since 2001 โ€” and best ever on these boundaries

๐ŸŒนLabour is now a government in waiting

We spent last weekend with @ZibaCreativeUK at @RiverfrontArts making and creating festival inspired crafts. Come and join us in the arts tent at Reggae and Riddim 2022!โœŒ๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿ‡ฏ๐Ÿ‡ฒ

#YouthWorkWeek2022 #YWW22

This week is #YouthWorkWeek, and we are proud to be working alongside @NewportMind to support young people as they tackle the challenging topics within our upcoming theatre production. Working together to promote healthy wellbeingโ™ฅ๏ธ #YWW22 #WellbeingMatters

๐Ÿฅ— Over the last year @FareShareCymru have supplied the equivalent of more than 63000 meals to people in Newport East.

Across the U.K. @FareShareUK provide an estimated 4 meals every second, so today in Parliament I asked the government why theyโ€™ve cut their funding.


๐ŸŒนGood to be on the bench for #BusinessQuestions today with the brilliant @ThangamMP who took the government to task over its failure to deal with the cost of living crisis & #BacklogBritain.

Did you know: Reggae and Riddim Festival #RNR2022 is the very first UK event to be endorsed for the 60th Diamond Jubilee celebrations marking Jamaicas independence in 1962 ๐Ÿ–ค

Are you joining us in July?

#Jamaica #partnerships #Proud

Such a pleasure to introduce @Keir_Starmer to Jasmine and Sydney in @UKParliament after todayโ€™s #PMQs.

Both Sydney and Jasmine are with @JGriffithsLab and I for work experience this week.

Working people are paying more tax and being told to take pay cuts. Meanwhile, the Prime Minister wishes to remove the bankers bonus cap. We know who he stands for.


"Whilst he blames everyone and anyone, working people are paying the price."

Bang on from @Keir_Starmer at #PMQs today - it's time the PM got on with his job instead of pushing blame around. It's time him and the Transport Secretary got around the table.


Yesterday we had the Honour of visiting Parliament ahead of this weekends Armed Forces Day.
A great opportunity to raise awareness of the issues faced by veterans and their families and to discuss our plan to help tackle the problems faced โšฝ๏ธ๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿด๓ ง๓ ข๓ ท๓ ฌ๓ ณ๓ ฟ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง

Such a pleasure to welcome David, the CEO of @HubNewport to Parliament this evening for a reception with @Keir_Starmer and @JohnHealey_MP ahead of this weekendโ€™s Armed Forces Day.


Today is #GlobalMNDAwarenessDay - a day to raise awareness of motor neurone disease around the world.

As an MP I will work to support people living with and affected by #MND and champion @mndcampaigns in Parliament.

Please share this graphic highlighting the key facts. ๐Ÿ’™

๐Ÿ‘‡๐ŸผIf you need help with anything, from cost of living to asb, to housing, passports and anything else, please come along on Saturday.

Todayโ€™s rail strike is disrupting the lives of people across the country.

The Tory government didnโ€™t spend a single second in talks to avoid it.

Rail workers kept our country going during the pandemic.

Many lost colleagues and friends.

They are the same people this shameless Prime Minister promised a high-wage economy to, before presiding over the biggest fall in living standards on record.

Such a pleasure to welcome David, the CEO of @HubNewport to Parliament this evening for a reception with @Keir_Starmer and @JohnHealey_MP ahead of this weekendโ€™s Armed Forces Day.


If you were one of the Newport East constituents that signed the petition calling on the U.K. Government to legislate to End The Cage Age for all farmed animals, you can see the debate live at 4.30pm by heading to this link ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿผ

#endthecageage #debate

๐Ÿ’‰ In partnership with the @AneurinBevanUHB , the Community East Hub in Ringland are holding a Covid-19 walk-in clinic today.

No appointment required - but please bring ID.

Britain is facing the biggest rail strike in a generation but @GrantShapps hasnโ€™t spent a single second in talks to avert it since March.

Time is running out. The Tories must get round the table and sort this out.

I know the challenges we face can be overcome if government works hand in hand with business.

Itโ€™s a partnership that can be the route out of the low growth weโ€™re facing, towards a dynamic economy where opportunity is shared.

My @thetimes piece today.

Great to meet people with neurological conditions, charities and clinicians to launch @NeuroAlliance report and #BackThe1in6 campaign. Over 8,500 people shared their experiences through #MyNeuroSurvey. I support action to improve services and support including a Neuro Taskforce

Great to support #MenopauseMonday in the House of Commons earlier this week, Carolyn Harris brought together fellow MPs and campaigners such as @mariellaf1 to make a case for improved support for the menopause.
A great day and thereโ€™s much more to come.
๐Ÿ“ท @Jess__Taylor__

Thanks to @southwalesargus for picking up on my comments in Parliament this week. The situation with passports really is a nightmare for so many Newport East constituents.

Six years ago our colleague and friend, Jo Cox, was murdered.

In Joโ€™s memory we continue to look ahead with a belief that the world she believed in so passionately remains within our grasp.

โ€œWe are far more united and have far more in common than that which divides us.โ€

It was great to have so many MPs, businesses and local leaders turn out today to #STEPUpForSevern !๐Ÿ™Œ

MPs from across England and Wales delivered a letter to @KwasiKwarteng on why @WesternGateway_ bid is the best site for @UKAEAofficial STEP programme๐Ÿ‘‰

Huge waits for passports and driving licences.

Huge queues at airports.

Huge waiting lists for healthcare and court dates.

Sign our petition if youโ€™ve had enough of Boris Johnsonโ€™s Backlog Britain. ๐Ÿ“

Spent the day @sportwalesNC, Sophia Gardens to watch the @WelshGymnastics Annette Brown Classic 2022.

Proud to say that Sara representing @VGAGymnastics was Overall Champion in the Disability Category she competed in.
@dsw_news @BritGymnastics @ParalympicsGB @SHINEUKCharity

If the Transport Secretary spent less time on Tik Tok pretending heโ€™s on Top Gear & more time around the table with unions & employers - like the @WelshLabour government has - then there wouldnโ€™t be strikes planned on the railways in England next week.

Itโ€™s as simple as that.
