Almost 9,000 pensioners in Leicester West will lose their winter fuel payments worth up to £300 a year under the Tory “triple whammy” on the elderly. I will stand up for local pensioners every step of the way.

  • Tories have broken their promise to protect pensions
  • Tory dementia tax will make even more people pay for their care
  • Tories will cut winter fuel payments

The Tories are planning to cut £398,000 from our schools in Leicester West – that’s the equivalent of 16 primary teachers. I am fighting these cuts because I know how damaging they will be to local people.

I recently met with local residents in Beaumont Leys to discuss the challenges of Brexit and what should happen next in order to get the best deal for jobs, businesses and workers’ rights. I was joined by Sophy Ridge, from Sky News as part of her programme on Sunday mornings.

It is really important to me to hear my constituent’s views, whether they voted to Leave or Remain, and to find out what their priorities are for the future. I will continue to do all I can to hold the Government to account for its decisions, and to fight for the best deal possible for our city.
