MP’s REPORT JULY 2016
EU REFERENDUM We worked hard for a Remain vote in Brentford & Isleworth, with leaflets, doorstep and phone conversations, and a letter from me combining my first year report with my views on the Referendum. All credit to those volunteers who put so much time and energy in.
Our local campaign must have made a difference here. 56.4% voted to Remain and 44.2% Leave (the rest is rounding errors and spoilt ballots). The published ward figures for Remain are as follows: Hounslow Heath 51%, Osterley & Spring Grove 37%, Hounslow Central 51%, Hounslow South 56%, Syon 55%, Isleworth 55%, Brentford 56%, Turnham Green 73%, Riverside 74%, Homefields 73%
But as we know the country voted to leave, and if the UK does proceed with Brexit the impact on jobs and business here will be significant. We have already seen an impact with reports of racist insults locally and I have had several emails from people worried about their business, their job or their future.
Thank you for the emails I've received so far. We have work to do here. If you are keen to work with me on practical opportunities, please email me on email@example.com
YOUR VOICE IN PARLIAMENT: June was a quiet month in Parliament due to the Witsun & Referendum recesses. I sponsored a Westminster Hall debate and asked questions in the chamber on Affordable Housing in London. At both the Housing Minister refused to acknowledge that the economic and social consequences of the housing crisis is the Government’s responsibility. I’ve been submitting written questions on HGV driver training, and amending road accident investigation procedures. For updates of my Parliamentary activity go to http://www.theyworkforyou.com
CONSTITUENCY UPDATE: In addition to the busy weekly surgeries, where housing and home office incompetence continue to dominate, I’ve had the pleasure of visiting a number of local places such as the Bridgelink Centre on Ivybridge estate in Isleworth where there is a massive range of support and activities from a foodbank and café, to debt an welfare advice and family mediation. I joined Hounslow Friends of Faith on the annual Peace Walk, attended the opening of the 50th Bedford Park community festival, did a phone-in on Radio Ramadan at Hounslow Mosque, celebrated at three 90th Birthday Parties for the Queen and spoke at a
meeting with Brentford Councillors with residents angry about the 235 Bus. With Seema Malhotra MP and Councillors and community organisations, we held a tribute to our murdered friend, Jo Cox MP, in central Hounslow. We committed to work for the better, fairer society that Jo would have wanted
