  • Why Does The Prime Minister Keep Dancing To The Tune Of The European Research Group?

    July 17, 2018

    The Prime Minister came to the House to answer questions on the NATO Summit, I asked her why she keeps dancing to the Brexiteers tune. The ink is barely dry on her Chequers deal, but she’s killing it by capitulating to the likes of Rees-Mogg.

  • This is the biggest threat to democracy we've ever faced in Britain

    July 16, 2018

    Independent This month, draft findings of the Electoral Commission’s investigation into Vote Leave, the official pro-Brexit referendum campaign, were leaked, revealing Vote Leave of being guilty of breaking electoral law, on multiple accounts. They are expected to face the most hefty fines in the watchdog’s history. Then there was Cambridge Analytica, the disgraced big data company that was using misappropriated Facebook data to sell elections to the highest bidder and saw Facebook receive the maximum fine of £500,000. Then who could forget Nigel Farage's Leave.EU – the unofficial Brexit campaign bankrolled by the infamous insurance tycoon Arron Banks – which was recently found guilty of "multiple breaches of electoral law", fined £70,000 and referred to the Metropolitan Police for suspected criminal offences.

  • Brexit Debate St Joseph's

    July 13, 2018

    I had an engaging question and answer session about Brexit with pupils at St Joseph's. The session was arranged with Our Future, Our Choice. I spoke about how it is important for the voices of young people to be heard in the Brexit discussions as they will be living with the consequences of these decisions much longer than the politicians who are making them. There were lots of interesting and searching questions, and it was great to hear the views of young people. 
  • Scholars Programme St Joseph's

    July 13, 2018

    I visited St Joseph's Comprehensive and Sixth Form to hear about the pupils progress as part of The Scholars Programme, a prestigious national scheme which gives school pupils an opportunity to experience university-style learning. It was great to visit and meet pupils taking part in The Scholars Programme. I was very impressed at how they engaged with such a complex and challenging academic topic. It just goes to show what young people from Aberavon can achieve if we give them the opportunity. I wish the pupils the very best for the future, and I encourage more schools to give their pupils the chance to benefit from this programme.

  • Caroline Noakes MP Appears In Front Of Committee For Exiting The European Union

    July 13, 2018

    The Minister of State for Immigration, Caroline Noakes MP, appeared before the Committee for Exiting the EU. I was able to ask her about immigration post Brexit and the Independent Monitoring Authority. The Government is obliged to create an Independent Monitoring Authority (IMA) to resolve post-Brexit disputes about status of EU citizens in UK. But an IMA is nowhere to be seen and the clock is ticking. The Minister promised me she'll write to Brexit committee so that we can update the 3 million EU citizens living in the UK.

  • Committee for Exiting the EU Hears Evidence On The Progress Of UK’s Negotiations

    July 12, 2018

    The Committee for Exiting the EU heard evidence from Allie Renison, Head of Europe and Trade Policy, Institute of Directors; Henry Newman, Director, Open Europe; and Michael Dougan, Professor of European Law and Jean Monnet Chair in EU Law, University of Liverpool. I asked about the withdrawal agreement and being ready for Brexit. Doing a deal is not just about words on a piece of paper. It's about having the institutions in place. It's a pipe dream to think we can create and build new institutions by December 2020. An EEA based Brexit is the only viable option.

  • Steel Summit: Steel 2020 Contains A Detailed Road Map On What Can Be Done

    July 10, 2018

    The British steel industry is hobbled by punitive energy costs (far higher than in Germany, France & Netherlands). In January 2017 the all party group on Steel produced 'Steel 2020', with recommendations on how to reduce costs. Claire Perry promised she'll read it. Looking forward to her feedback!

  • Steel Summit: Closure Of The Blast Furnace & Coke Ovens Was An Act Of Industrial Vandalism

    July 10, 2018

    During a Westminster Hall debate, secured by my colleague Anna Turley, I called the closure of the blast and coke ovens in Redcar an action of industrial vandalism which led to the loss of a strategic asset for our country.

  • Chequers Proposal Is A Bureaucratic Nightmare That’s Riddled With Complexity And Ambiguity

    July 10, 2018

    The Chequers proposal is a bureaucratic nightmare that’s riddled with complexity and ambiguity. Surely the Prime Minister must now stop trying to re-invent the wheel, and commit instead to an EEA-based Brexit? My question to her in the House:
