Since becoming your Member of Parliament, I have fought hard against plans to locate a women’s residential centre within our constituency. I am pleased that the Justice Minister has listened to the concerns I raised with her regarding the proposed sites in Bridgend and Porthcawl.
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.
It was great to attend the Porthcawl RNLI’s naming ceremony of their new D class lifeboat. The lifeboat has been named after Hugo Missen, who tragically died of leukaemia at fifteen months old.
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 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.
Thank you to the residents in Pen-y-Fai who came out to speak to me at my street surgery. It was great to talk to residents about several local and national issues that matter to them.
