The Queen’s Speech set out 38 new Bills, helping to ease the cost of living, strengthen our economy and make our streets safer for everyone. These new Bills will ensure that the Conservatives deliver on the promises we made in 2019.
My Work in Parliament
When in Parliament, my time will be spent in a variety of ways. These include: meeting with organisations or groups at the request of constituents, attending receptions or briefings, debating in the House of Commons or Westminster Hall, asking oral questions of Ministers, meeting with Ministers on behalf of constituents, entertaining constituents who are visiting and taking part in select committee meetings. Below you can read about some of the things I’ve been doing whilst in Westminster.
I have written to the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing & Communities to ask whether he has plans to enable community organisations, such as charities, to directly sponsor Ukrainian refugees.
I have written to the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office to ask if the Foreign Secretary will assess the potential use of human rights legislation by Russian oligarchs to avoid sanctions. The UK Government must continue to ensure that all oligarchs close to Putin are sanctioned without fear or favour.
I met with LEGO and RNIB to discuss their new braille bricks, and how they can be used in our education system. This exciting new concept is a playful methodology, helping children who are blind or visually impaired to develop tactile skills and learn braille.
I was proud to hold a Westminster Hall debate today on reforming the Computer Misuse Act 1990. The need for this debate has become far more urgent as Russia’s unprovoked invasion of Ukraine has placed a spotlight on the pressing requirement to strengthen the UK’s cybersecurity.
The Home Secretary has opened a Ukraine Casework Hub in Parliament. This Hub gives me direct access to submitting visa applications on behalf of Bridgend residents under the Homes for Ukraine Scheme.
An update of what I’ve been up to this week as your MP for Bridgend and Porthcawl. If there’s anything I can do to help, please do not hesitate to get in touch at Jamie.firstname.lastname@example.org.
I attended a meeting with the Home Office to receive an update regarding Ukrainian refugees in the United Kingdom. As Ukraine continues to defend its freedom, the UK public has shown compassion and warmth in welcoming the people of Ukraine into the United Kingdom.
