What I do

Balham

The Streatham constituency contains significant residential areas of Balham. It has been a centre of the Polish community in London since World War II, but also has significant Irish, Portuguese, Somali, Brazilian and Pakistani communities.

I voted for Dominic Grieve’s motion to require the release of all communications to or from the current administration relating to the Yellowhammer No Deal Brexit analysis produced by the Government.

I have written to Lambeth Council with the concerns of a number of my constituents about the problem of flytipping in the area which poses a threat to health and safety.

London is not included in the current Government funding programme for superfast broadband capability across the UK. I have written to the Government to make sure London is included.

I signed EDM 2681 calling on the Government and Commonwealth to provide Hong Kong citizens with a second citizenship and potential place of refuge in response to a violent crackdown on protests by authorities.

I voted with my Liberal Democrat colleagues to pass the Hilary Benn Bill to request an extension to Article 50 if the Prime Minister fails to reach a deal at the European Council.

Hundreds of constituents have got in touch with me appalled at Boris Johnson’s undemocratic moves to shutdown Parliament. I will do all I can to ensure Streatham’s voice is heard and oppose No Deal and Brexit altogether.

I signed EDM 2646 opposing Boris Johnson suspending Parliament and calling for MPs to sit until November to ensure that the people’s voices are heard in the Brexit process.

I signed the Church House declaration of MPs committing to do all we can to ensure the people’s voice is heard in the Brexit process and opposing a Parliament shutdown.

I have written to Andrea Leadsom, Secretary of State for Business, calling for government to intervene in the proposed takeover of British aerospace firm Cobham by a US vulture private equity firm.

I signed EDM 2368 calling on government to fund legal aid costs for the families of victims of terrorism, a campaign started by the family of a victim of the London Bridge attack.

I visited Dilpasand, a great new restaurant on the High Road and one of the few serving Pakistani food in Streatham, to talk about local business, and the challenges of opening a restaurant.

Visiting Creative Soul, an arts and design shop on Streatham High Road to discuss business, the local economy and the art and creative scene in Streatham that supply them.
