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!

Businesses, agency worker bodies and working people don’t want the Tory Government to scrap the agency worker ban. It’ll be unworkable. So the Government now picks another unnecessary fight combining attacking Senedd law and eroding legal rights in Wales. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-61957466

Labour’s commitment to NATO is unshakeable.

Ahead of NATO’s Madrid Summit this week to agree its next 10 year plan to respond to increasing threats, we have deep pride in Labour’s past in forging the Alliance. My interview today 👇

Under the Tories, your bills and taxes have risen to historic highs.

Labour has a plan to take on the Tory cost of living crisis and build a stronger economy.

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

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

What an honour to lead my home town of Blaenavon’s World Heritage Day Parade today @UNESCO @UNESCOUK.

Thank you to everyone who attended to make the day so special!

This is a very powerful and moving interview from @sajidjavid.

Thank you so much for sharing.

Let’s do what it takes to reduce the prevalence of mental ill-health and speed up access to treatment for those who need it.

Thank you so much to all at Western Power Distribution @wpduk in Cwmbran for giving me such a warm welcome on my visit this week, and for such an informative discussion, from dealing with urgent issues on the electricity distribution network to your apprenticeship programme.

Thank you to @eatoncorp in Cwmbran for being so welcoming yesterday, discussing your objectives and your products, including fire detection systems.

It was great to hear about your exports across the world and what can be done to offer more support.

It was a privilege to open Blaenavon World Heritage Day 2022 @VisitBlaenavon.

I’m so proud that my hometown is a World Heritage Site @UNESCOUK @UNESCO, drawing on our great past to build for the future-it was great to speak alongside World Heritage Youth Ambassador Dan Morse.

On #ArmedForcesDay2022 we thank our armed forces for their remarkable service and dedication to keeping us safe.

We must ensure there is a fair deal for our veterans and that they get access to the services they need.

I’m proud to be President of my hometown football club @blaenavonblues.

Presentation Night at @ParkwayHotelSpa was special after a whole league season unbeaten.

Delighted to present my President’s Award to first-team manager Lee Challenger and to lift our Gwent FA Senior Cup!

On his feet right now… Welsh First Minister Mark Drakeford making the case for Senedd reform at this evening’s Torfaen Labour Party meeting at Panteg House 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿🌹

"The Tory Party is absolutely imploding, they know they are out of ideas and out of touch"

Labour leader Keir Starmer says if the Conservative Party "had any decency they they would get out of the way for the next Labour government"

Wakefield’s win will go down in history, @SimonLightwood.

I’m so proud of our Labour Party and the changes we’ve made to be a government in waiting.

"This is vindication for all of our hard work over the last two years... I'm so proud of our Labour Party"

Keir Starmer reacts to the results of the by-election, as Labour retakes Wakefield

https://bbc.in/3A8XtvY

So proud of Wakefield’s new MP, the fantastic @simonlightwood.

This was @UKLabour’s biggest victory here since we were last in government.

This decisive result shows Labour is winning the trust of the British people, and firmly on the path to power.

“This is a profound mistake from Dominic Raab”

Labour’s @NickTorfaen laments the “party of Churchill…trying to trash” the European Convention on Human Rights and concedes there are decisions he doesn’t agree with but it’s about the “greater good”. #bbcqt

Just six weeks ago Ministers feigned outrage at the illegal and unsafe decision to replace P&O workers with agency staff.

Now they’re adopting their playbook.

This senseless plan is a recipe for disaster.

Agencies themselves have said this is unworkable and don’t want it to happen. The Government are willing to ride roughshod over businesses to provoke this dispute rather than act like grown-ups and actually resolve it

Today, once again people will be left without travel to work, school, or hospital appointments.

All because the Tory government couldn’t be bothered to hold any talks to resolve the strike.

Good to hear coverage of the UK’s lack of access to the #Horizon science programme on #r4today this morning.

Exactly the sort of area @UKLabour will deliver on by focusing on practical improvements to our trading relationship with the EU

On Question Time tomorrow, Fiona will be joined by @redditchrachel, @NickTorfaen, @AnneBoden, Mick Lynch of @RMTunion and @benhabib6.

Join us and a studio audience from Stratford-upon-Avon at 10.40pm on @BBCOne. #bbcqt

On #WindrushDay, we celebrate the Windrush generation, who helped rebuild Britain.

But the Tories’ hostile environment left many homeless, jobless and without healthcare - and victims are still waiting for compensation.

@DavidLammy shares their story.

"He's having meetings about increasing banker's bonuses, but he can't find time for a single meeting to end the strikes crippling the country."

@Keir_Starmer calls on the Prime Minister to meet with the unions.

NEW: Inflation up at 9.1% today.

Inflation is pushing family finances to the brink - but the low wage spiral many face isn’t new.

It’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.

Great to welcome pupils to @UKParliament from @cwmffrwdoer Primary in Torfaen & @NantYParcSchool in Caerphilly with @WayneDavid_MP today.

It was a great chat & we were asked a lot of questions!

Excellent reception tonight in office of @Keir_Starmer for Britain’s Armed Forces and Veterans, ahead of @ArmedForcesDay Great to see a good Welsh contingent! @labourforces @AngelaRayner @JohnHealey_MP

"Even at this eleventh hour it is still possible for Grant Shapps to step in."

Shadow Transport Secretary @LouHaigh says a "resolution must be found" to settle rail strikes.

The rail strike this week will be devastating for workers, passengers, and the economy.

And the Tory government isn’t lifting a finger to resolve it.

Sign our petition and tell the Tories to do their job to avoid the strike. ✍️

The Tories have let Britain’s growth grind to a halt.

And left working people to pay the price.

Labour will tackle the cost of living crisis and build a stronger, more secure economy.

Great to hear from our @WelshLabour ALC rep and @torfaencouncil Leader @PantegAnthony showing what a Labour Council working with a Labour Government in Wales can achieve. #LabLocal22

Britain is facing the biggest rail strike in a generation but @GrantShapps hasn’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.

@NickTorfaen @PantegAnthony thank you both for opening our @PontypoolRelay. Your support is greatly appreciated. Fab opportunity for our Youth Committee to meet you both.

At the Hope GB Autism Pride Festival in @PantegHouse presenting the amazing Sarah Robinson with a @RoyalVolService Platinum Champion Award - it’s thoroughly deserved #CheersforVolunteers

Huge waits for passports and driving licences.

Huge queues at airports.

Huge waiting lists for healthcare and court dates.

Welcome to Boris Johnson’s Backlog Britain.

A privilege to speak alongside @PantegAnthony at the opening of the Cancer Research UK Relay for Life in Pontypool @CR_UK @CRUKCymru @sianywhelan @PontypoolRelay @RelayForLife. Well done to everyone involved including @SW20Radio. It was great to meet the Youth Committee too 👇
