I am honoured to have been appointed Parliamentary Private Secretary (PPS) to Angela Eagle MP, our Shadow Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS).
Please click here for an explanation of the role of a PPS.
I am greatly looking forward to using my background in business to help the Labour Party to re-engage and re-build its relationship with the business community.
BIS is the lead department of government on the future of the steel industry.
I am greatly looking forward to supporting Angela in her work inside and outside the Chamber, holding the government to account and sending a clear message that Labour is pro-business, but not pro-business as usual.'
