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.

Written Question to the Foreign Secretary

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.

Meeting LEGO to Discuss Braille Bricks

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.

Ukrainian Refugees Update

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.
