This week, my work in Parliament and across Gedling has included:
Introducing Gedling's Kids Against Plastic to Nottinghamshire's Chairman of Children & Young People, Cllr Tracey Taylor, as part of their campaign to reduce single use plastics in our schools
Spoke in the Report Stage of the debate on the Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill about the importance of tackling pet theft
At the Public Administration and Constitutional Affairs Committee I quizzed the Mayor of Greater Manchester, Andy Burnham, and the Mayor of the North of Tyne Combined Authority, Jamie Driscoll, about their views on the development of devolution in England.
Discussed making Gedling safe with Nottinghamshire's Police and Crime Commissioner Caroline Henry, and the Chief Constable
Met the Home Secretary Priti Patel MP to discuss the Government's new plan for immigration, which is targeted at reducing channel crossings
As Vice Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Hong Kong I met with the Minister of State for Asia to discuss actions the Government is taking in response to the crack down on human rights in the former colony
Spoke with Gedling residents about anti-social behaviour issues in Arnold during my regular surgery
Popped into the Ark in Gedling to see the amazing work they are doing in supporting Gedling residents into employment
Now enjoying a Friday cocktail with my team at Arnold’s new Sashas Wine and Cocktail Bar, which is a great addition to Front Street and independently run by a local resident - well worth a visit
Have a great weekend and good luck to England in Sunday’s final!
