Westminster Hall

This Week In Parliament

On 09/06/2015 I led a general debate in Westminster Hall on the issue of toxic air pollution in London. The air in our capital has the highest levels of lethal chemicals found in Europe and thousands of Londoners are dying early every year as a result. It was great to have the opportunity to raise this crucial problem and heartening to see a chamber packed with colleagues from all sides of the house. There is much work to be done to tackle this issue. 

Hackney Happenings

Around Hackney

Recently I made a visit to Hackney's excellent Chatsworth Road Market. 

The quality and variety of the produce on offer was simply incredible. 

It was fantastic to see such a thriving market place that really symbolises the vibrancy our of local community.

I picked up a number of delicious items to take home with me! 

Health Matters
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.
