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.

On Tuesday 7th February I was interviewed on BBC East Midlands Today about whether patients are getting enough information on the excellent services provided at Glenfield Hospital and why I think Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt should look again at referrals for children’s heart surgery in the East Midlands.

On Monday 27th February I was a guest on BBC Radio 4’s Any Questions? where I discussed the rights of EU citizens in the UK, the House of Lords and the Brexit deal, access to Personal Independence Payments for disabled people and the current crisis in prisons. You can listen again to the show here.
