What I do

Streatham

Streatham is where I grew up, and is a vibrant, diverse, and growing community. It is tied together by Streatham High Road, an important business hub and Europe’s longest High Street. Streatham has benefited from its diversity with a growing cultural scene including film, food, and arts festivals supported by the inStreatham business improvement district.

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.

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 tabled a series of questions to the Local Government Minister following up on concerns raised by constituents about housing, safety and homelessness.

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 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.
