Between 2010-2020 the Government reduced funding to NHS dentists by a quarter @TheBDA. The issues with access to NHS dentistry existed before COVID hit – the Government has been too slow to act and needs to step up

Also @commonsPAC on Child Maintenance Service and roving surgery

Levels of potentially lethal #pollutants like #NO2 breach legal limits in many areas of the UK & in 2021 a London #coroner found there's "no safe level of particulate matter" in the air, and called for national #pollution limits to be reduced

Hackney’s Armed Forces Day static parade was well attended by our local forces and cadet groups, and gave us the opportunity to thank them for their work and support. @Steve_Howlett @Meg_HillierMP @hackneycouncil

Really good to attend the annual @StPetersDB St Peter’s Day service with deputy speaker @anyasizer & @Meg_HillierMP celebrating the life of the church & the De Beauvoir community. Thank you @frsimoncuff for the invitation & your hospitality.

Have you seen this person? He's wanted by the police for a series of sexual assaults on Hackney Marshes.

If this person looks familiar please call 101, or message @MetCC, or to remain anonymous call @CrimestoppersUK on 0800 555 111.

Here's @Meg_HillierMP referencing @hk_watch research.

She asks Minister for Asia Amanda Milling if the Government will commit to using the Economic Crimes Act to sanction those Hong Kong officials mentioned in the report.

Answer: nope.

A big thanks to all the amazing performers & poets & to everyone who joined us for our #NationalWindrushDay celebration.

Make sure you visit Warm Shores by Thomas J Price, the sculptures commissioned in honour of the Windrush generation, in Town Hall Square.

Britain is home to millions of creative entrepreneurs and start-ups.

But under the Tories, some British businesses are unable to thrive.

The next Labour government will work with businesses to make Britain the best place to start and grow a business.

After two years of lockdown and no travel, it was entirely predictable that there would be an increase in passport demand – the Government has been asleep on the job.

Also I pressed the Health Minister on access to NHS dentists in #Hackney and @commonsPAC on waste crime

💥@MoJGovUK has written-off a "staggering" £98MN of taxpayers' money after dropping a programme to expand the use of #tagging or electronic monitoring of #offenders @hmpps

An important report on the impact of community energy ⚡

Just imagine what community energy could do – how many solar panels we could install, homes we could retrofit, and bills we could lower – if it was properly funded and supported.

"There's never been the right package to pay dentists," says @Meg_HillierMP, "which is driving them out of business."

Patients will lose out unless Ministers offer real certainty & ambition on reform.

It will take more than tweaks to save NHS dentistry 👉https://www.bda.org/news-centre/press-releases/Pages/Modest-marginal-tweaks-are-coming-to-NHS-dentistry-not-needed-reform.aspx

In this week's round-up, 41 per cent of Tory MPs confirm that they do not have confidence in the PM, @commonsPAC found that £4 billion of unusable PPE will be burned, and my visits around Hackney during the Jubilee weekend.

Hackney Mayor @PhilipGlanville is spearheading Hackney Labour's campaign to ‘Save Our Buses’ and launched an attack on the Tory Government for making swingeing funding cuts to Transport for London and "using our transport system as a ‘political football’"

Tory failure on energy is costing Britain.

Labour would reform our broken energy system and accelerate renewables and new nuclear.

We would save you money by retrofitting 19 million homes to be more energy efficient and cheaper to heat.

Celebrate the #Jubilee👑at Pearson Street (E2 8JD) or Homerton Grove (E9 6BX) Adventure Playgrounds tomorrow from 12-3pm. Take part in fun play challenges, learn circus skills and even make a portrait of the queen! Tea, cakes and sandwiches will also be available 🍰☕️🥪

The Chancellor demonstrated Labour is a government in waiting by announcing our policy of a windfall tax on oil and gas companies to tackle the cost-of-living crisis. This is welcome step but months overdue.

Also #SueGray, Home Office delays, and the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Two years ago today George Floyd’s murder sparked a global movement from Minneapolis to Manchester.

Labour will always fight for justice and to eradicate racism.

Inflation for the poorest will reach nearly 11 per cent but Government is not seeing the urgency of the issue. It should support Labour’s plan for a one-off tax on the vast profits of oil and gas giants.

Yesterday the Conservative government voted to protect oil and gas producers over working people and pensioners.

Labour would introduce a one-off windfall tax on oil and gas producer profits to put money back in your pocket.
