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.
This week, I met with the Secretary of State for Levelling up, Housing and Communities, Michael Gove, to discuss Bridgend’s Levelling Up Fund bids.
I welcome the UK Government’s Homes for Ukraine Scheme, which will allow individuals, charities, community groups and businesses in the UK to bring Ukrainians to safety – including those with no family ties to the UK.
This week, I met with Citizens Advice and Natwest to discuss their partnership to support financially vulnerable people across the United Kingdom.
At this week’s sitting of the Parliamentary Welsh Affairs Committee, I questioned the First Minister, Mark Drakeford, on his refusal to hold a Wales specific COVID inquiry.
This week, I met with the Royal National Institute of Blind People to discuss their work with major brands to develop new technology for accessible packaging.
I asked the Foreign Secretary, Liz Truss, if Britain will show the world that we are willing and ready to retaliate to cyber-attacks on our country.
