  • Northern Ireland Backstop Has To Be Time-Limited, But Minister Can't Tell Us The End Date

    October 10, 2018

    Dominic Raab told the House that the Northern Ireland backstop has to be time-limited. I asked him to tell us which date he has in mind. Incredibly, with just a week to go until the crucial Brussels summit, he was unable to tell us.

  • Statement On Junction 41

    September 27, 2018

    Commenting on a report produced for the Welsh Government into the monitoring of vehicle emissions between Junction 41 & Junction 42, which includes the option of closing the junction as a possible way to reduce pollution and meet legal requirements on emissions, Aberavon MP Stephen Kinnock said,   “It is deeply disappointing to see a fresh threat to close junction 41 emerge. Last time the proposals were widely rejected by the local community, who came together to fight, and win, a long and difficult campaign to keep the junction open.

  • To Win The Next Election We Need To Show Communitarians That We Genuinely Share Their Values And Priorities

    September 25, 2018

    House Magazine It’s fair to say that my party came out of the 2017 general election on a high. We went into the campaign with low expectations, but Jeremy Corbyn’s energy, an inspiring manifesto and a clear, socialist anti-austerity message took us to 40% in the polls. Yet we still came second. And despite the shambles of the Conservative’s Brexit negotiations, the polls have barely moved an inch since. We should now be 20 points ahead, so why aren’t we? And why is our politics in this worrying state of paralysis and deadlock?

  • Unison Question Time

    September 25, 2018

    It was great to take part in the question time event organised by Unison Neath Port Talbot on fair funding for local services.

  • Tata Steel Visit 2018

    September 21, 2018

    It was great to visit the steelworks in Port Talbot and wonderful to see the timeline of the history of the site dating back to 13th century, followed by visit to Concast & the BOS plant. There is a long tradition of steel making in Port Talbot and the timeline shows the centuries of development of the steel making industry and how integral it is to the town. It was a real privilege to see the highly skilled workforce delivering an outstanding product for British industry.

  • Austerity Has left councils At Breaking Point, Westminster Must Give Them The Money They Desperately Need

    September 19, 2018

    Theresa May claims to not have a magic money tree, but whenever she raids the back of the sofa she always comes up with the money she needs: there was the £1bn she found for Northern Ireland and then the £20.5bn for the NHS. Well now she needs to go back to that sofa and find the money for local government because without the resources they need councils are teetering on the cliff edge.

  • Let's Send Mr Putin A Clear Message: British People Will No Longer Tolerate Brazen & Reckless Actions Of Your Regime

    September 13, 2018

    Speaking in the debate on the Salisbury Incident, I spoke about my time in Russia, the UK's relationship with Russia and the need to send Mr Putin a clear message: the British people will no longer tolerate the brazen and reckless actions of your regime, and we will no longer tolerate the way in which you and your cronies use London as a laundromat for your ill-gotten gains.

  • No Reason Why UK Cannot Take Unilateral National Action On The Basis Of Magnitsky Amendment

    September 13, 2018

    The fact that Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia have all taken unilateral action, implementing their Magnitsky legislation, clearly demonstrates that there is no reason why the United Kingdom cannot do the same. Government needs to explain why they have not taken unilateral national action.
