Drop the Bill

The results are in...

I am delighted to return to Parliament as the Member for Hackney North and Stoke Newington, winning the seat with 31,357 votes (62.9%).  

Although nationally it was a disappointing night for the Labour Party, we can take heart from a great showing in London winning a number of key target seats. I have huge faith in our ability to move forward from this result and I am confident for the future.

Visit to St. Joseph's Hospice

Recently I visited Hackney's St. Joseph's Hospice to get a first hand look at the fantastic work the team of specialist doctors, nurses, social workers and other skilled staff and volunteers, that provide excellent care for anyone with serious or life threatening conditions.

These services are essential to our community and our provided both in the hospice and in patient's homes. 

It was a great opportunity to discover more about the hard work of the staff and hear more about the fascinating history of the hospice that has been here in Hackney since 1905.
