Rape prosecutions are still at near record lows & court backlogs are still at near record highs.

Three years on from recognising their failure, the Tories haven’t done nearly enough.

Labour’s plan would drive up prosecutions & restore victims’ confidence in our justice system.

Today the new law for death by dangerous driving comes into effect. Thank you to the many tireless campaigners who have fought for this change in law, not least my constituent Johnny Wood, who has worked so hard for justice for his sister Jackie.

It was an honour to walk @simonlightwood into the Commons Chamber to take his seat today after his by-election success in Wakefield on Thursday.

Proud to be part of this historic @UKLabour victory, I know Simon will be an excellent MP for Wakefield.

There was a great attendance from across Barnsley at the Armed Forces Day Parade at the Penistone Showground.

Lots of activities, music and living history performances.

This Armed Forces Day, as Shadow Veterans Minister, I am proud to take a look back at some of the people I have met and the campaigns Labour has championed alongside our former service personnel in the last 365 days🧵👇

A pleasure to speak from Wakefield this morning on Labour’s historic victory

Voters here sent a clear message that they have had enough of Boris Johnson & the Tory cost of living crisis

Only Labour has a plan to rebuild this country, fix our economy & tackle the cost of living

Incredibly proud of the brilliant @simonlightwood - Labour MP for Wakefield.

The biggest ever majority on the current boundaries.

This historic result shows the progress we’ve made towards forming the next Labour government.

I'm so proud of the incredible support that you have all given me throughout this campaign. Thank you.

🚨 @hopenothate are under attack by #TommyRobinson and #BritainFirst. They’re ambushing HNH’s supporters, family members, and making unfounded complaints to the police.

Can you help by chipping into their crowdfunder to deal with the security threats?

As we celebrate Armed Forces Day this week, it's vital we also recognise the contribution our Reserve Forces make to our nation's security.

This week, I appeared on @ITVLastOrders. I spoke about the unacceptable @ukhomeoffice delays meaning that many are unable to get their passports to make business trips, visit loved ones or even hold suitable ID.

I appeared on this week's @politicshome podcast The Rundown to reflect on this week in Westminster, upcoming by-elections, and the cost of living crisis. You can listen to the podcast via this link: https://podfollow.com/politicshome/episode/a2e8d27b880c26ff5c7f5810934d70302038f3c1/view

We were pleased to meet @michaelgove and his @luhc team at our HQ in #Barnsley.

A really productive meeting on #LevellingUp and our successful model of #regeneration.

A huge thank you to @Steph_Peacock and her team for making it all happen!

Following my invitation in the Commons I welcomed the Secretary of State @michaelgove to Barnsley today to meet @CoalfieldsRegen

We discussed the Trust's great work regenerating former mining areas & what support @GOVUK can give to help them continue their valuable work.

Incredibly proud of the Barnsley FA Schoolgirls u12s, who are set to compete in the national final! A huge achievement as they are the first girls team from Barnsley to ever get to the final. Wishing you the best of luck girls! ⚽🏆 @ChronOnline article: https://www.barnsleychronicle.com/article/23147/barnsley-schoolgirls-hope-to-complete-historic-season-with-final-win

Watch @ITVLastOrders after the late @itvnews in the Yorkshire region for incisive dissemination. Guaranteed. @harry_horton hosts debate with @Steph_Peacock @AlecShelbrooke

The helpline for Bullying, Harassment, and Discrimination in the Armed Forces receives the equivalent of over a call a day.

Ministers must do more to protect our service personnel👇

The average miner has a pension of just £84 per week. This is not good enough.

Alongside Trustees from the Mineworkers’ Pension Scheme I met with the Government minister responsible for the scheme @GregHands to discuss the current issues with miners’ pensions.

Today I attended the 40th anniversary service to mark the conclusion of the Falklands War at the Armed Forces Walkway in Barnsley.

We will never forget the bravery of service personnel who fought #Falklands40

It has been five years since 72 people were killed by a fire at Grenfell Tower.

The appalling tragedy is evidence of the unequal society we live in under this Tory government.

Today we remember the victims and demand action to ensure a similar tragedy can never happen again.

50% of veterans would rate their experience with the Armed Forces Compensation Scheme as a 1 out of 10.

Many are facing unacceptable delays on their applications to Veterans UK, and many more are stuck in the appeals system.

Today, I asked the Government to take action👇

This week my @ChronOnline column is about the difference volunteers make to so many of us across Barnsley 👇 https://www.stephaniepeacock.org.uk/column-volunteers-week/

I held one of my regular surgeries this week. If you have an issue you would like to discuss with me, please don’t hesitate to get in touch 👇

A big Labour win in Wakefield could boot Boris Johnson out of Downing Street. But I need your help to do it.

I am pleased that the PM has finally honoured his promise to meet with nuclear veterans, their families & @atomiclabrats to hear their stories.

The Government must now step up and match Labour's commitment to formally recognise our nuclear veterans.

This year’s #CarersWeek is focusing on the hard work done by unpaid carers, calling on @GOVUK to make caring visible, valued and supported.
