What I do

Clapham

The Streatham constituency contains the eastern side of Clapham across to the Common itself, including Clapham Park Estate, Lambeth Academy, and Thornton.

Clapham is a vibrant community and has undergone significant regeneration and investment in housing and on the high street in recent years. The Common remains a popular destination for tourists and locals.

I wrote to the new Chancellor of the Exchequer Sajid Javid calling on him to back our call for significant investment in public services, skills, infrastructure and adopt a full industrial strategy.

I attended the March for Change with Remain activists and Liberal Democrat members to call for a People’s Vote and to stop Brexit.

I knocked on doors on Cavendish Road to talk to residents about local issues. Two local school children gave me one of their posters raising awareness of climate change!

I visited Clapham Park estate to see the new community centre The Cube for a tour of the new facilities and to talk to local young people about issues such as knife crime and youth services.

I voted in favour of Hilary Benn’s amendment to the Northern Ireland bill to prevent a future Tory Prime Minister from suspending Parliament to force through a No Deal Brexit.

I raised the issue of the new mandatory two-factor authentication rules for online purchases from September with the Business Minister and warned of the major disruption to online retail unprepared for the changes.

I knocked on doors in the Sackville estate to talk about local issues like crime and local community developments, as well as hearing views on Brexit and national politics from residents.

I talked to residents in Blenheim Gardens about issues on the estate, their views on national issues like Brexit and the Conservative leadership, and to take on their casework.

I visited Iqra Primary School for a tour and to talk to KS2 pupils about Lambeth, politics and to answer their questions about my job as an MP.

I signed EDM 2511 calling on government to ensure that free menstrual products offered in schools aimed to tackle period poverty are eco-friendly and do not include single use plastics.

I attended an event by Demos and Opinium polling to discuss the progressive centre, Brexit, and how to deal with rising hate crime in our society.

I voted in favour of Stella Creasy’s successful amendment to the Northern Ireland Bill that requires the government to extend abortion rights to Northern Ireland.
