What I do

Brixton

The Streatham constituency contains the southern part of Brixton. It has a longstanding reputation as a vibrant cultural and creative hub, and has also seen significant transformation and investment. Windrush Square is named after the Windrush generation – who settled in Brixton after arriving in the UK as it had the labour exchange which was closest to the accommodation provided to migrants in Clapham – and is home of the Black Cultural Archives.

I spoke in Angela Smith’s Westminster Hall debate in favour of Proportional Representation in UK elections. Our main parties are broken and we need to fix the system.

Change UK launched our European Election campaign with the unequivocal vow to support a People’s Vote and champion our membership of the European Union.

My Independent Group colleagues and I voted in favour of Yvette Cooper’s bill to extend Article 50 to avoid a No Deal Brexit, which successfully passed into law.

Really enjoyed my visit to Julian’s Primary School, taking some great questions and being shown round by pupils. The school are doing a great job, thanks for the warm welcome!

I attended a Serious Youth Violence Summit in Number 10 to discuss with the Government how we can tackle the youth violence and knife crime that is blighting our streets in Lambeth and across the UK.

Just been through the House of Commons division lobby voting ‘NO’ to the Prime Minister’s flawed Brexit deal with Angela Smith and our The Independent Group colleagues.

Casting my ballot in today’s Indicative Votes on Brexit: backing a People’s Vote and Article 50 revocation!

Delighted to attend the People’s Vote Put It To The People March with 1 million people from across the UK, and alongside fellow MPs from The Independent Group!

It was a privilege to be able to visit the Gaia Centre today, who do incredible work supporting victims of domestic violence across Lambeth. We have one of the highest rates of domestic violence in the country, and Gaia are a model for how such services are run across the UK.

It was great to speak with my constituent Julia this afternoon about how we can improve legislation to prevent workplace sexual harassment and the This Is Not Working campaign.

Great to visit Henry Cavendish this afternoon to talk to the School Council, Eco Team and Rights Respecting Ambassadors. Lots of great questions about politics and the environment!

I have written to the Secretary of State for Health asking what his department are doing to ensure we eliminate new HIV transmissions by 2030.
