  • Single Market Must Be Central To Any Brexit Deal

    April 12, 2019

    The Single Market must be central to any Brexit deal: it would mean close economic ties but leaving political union. When I questioned the Prime Minister on the importance of Single Market membership for workers' rights, the integrity of the union and for the services sector, she suggested there is another way to protect Services (80% of economy), but refused to share her cunning plan! Then said we should leave to Tories to protect workers’ rights!

  • British Steel Pension Scheme Transfer Debate

    April 11, 2019

    Thousands of honest, hardworking steelworkers in my Aberavon constituency and across the country were left exposed to opportunistic and unscrupulous financial advisers. They sought to exploit the steelworkers when they were forced to decide whether to move to the British Steel Pension Scheme 2 or transfer out into another pension scheme. So far £1.8 million in compensation has been paid out to 61 steelworkers who have been missold pensions. But this is just the tip of the iceberg. Around eight thousand steelworkers transferred out and more than half received unsuitable advice. In a Westminster Hall debate on the scandal I set out how we can get justice.

  • A Stand-Alone Customs Union Would Be A Disaster For The British Economy

    April 10, 2019

    Politics Home In many ways the two high-quality Indicative Votes debates on the UK-EU future relationship showed our Parliament at its very best. We knew what was at stake. The priority, most of us agreed, was to avert the catastrophe of No Deal Brexit, so it was incumbent upon all of us to help get a majority for at least one Brexit option. The unwritten rule was that each MP should not only vote for their preferred option, but for all the options they could live with. In this spirit Conservative MPs outside the cabinet were given a free vote, Labour MPs were whipped to support three options, and for a fleeting moment it looked like British politics was about to re-discover the lost art of compromise.

  • Vernon Hartshorn Exhibition

    April 01, 2019

    I really enjoyed this exhibition on Friday in the South Wales Miners' Museum. Vernon Hartshorn is an unsung hero of the Labour movement. He started his working life as a coal miner and ended it as one of the most influential figures in British politics. I'm really pleased that this will be coming to Parliament in June!

  • Indicative Votes: Common Market 2.0

    March 28, 2019

    When Parliament had it's opportunity to debate alternative Brexit deals, I set out the arguments for Common Market 2.0 in the House, as lead sponsor of the amendment. Common Market 2.0 brings together Leavers and Remainers, and three different parties. Common Market 2.0 can get us out of this crisis and reunite our divided country.

  • Division has paralysed our politics - it's time for compromise

    March 25, 2019

    House Magazine There’s no doubt that Britain is a great country with so much going for it; economically, democratically, and culturally. But we are more divided than we have been at any time since the Second World War; young versus old, city versus town, graduate versus non-graduate.

  • Neath Port Talbot College Question Time

    March 18, 2019

    It was great to be at the Neath Port Talbot Question Time event at Nidum Arts Centre. It was really good to see so many young people getting engaged and holding their MPs, AMs and Councillors to account. Proof that votes at 16 is the way to go!
