Paul Blomfield MP

A strong voice for Sheffield Central

My week

This is the last week of Parliament before the summer recess and today I’ll be attending the first meeting since the General Election of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Migration, which I used to Chair and of which I’m still a member. I’ll also be going along to the regular meeting of Yorkshire and Humber Labour MPs.

My week in Westminster starts this morning with a Trustees meeting of Focus on Labour Exploitation, a charity which works to end human trafficking for labour exploitation. Later I’ll be at the weekly meeting of our Shadow Brexit team and also at an event organised by Universities UK about the future of UK higher education post-Brexit.

The debate on the Queen’s Speech continues this week and I’ll be speaking on Tuesday, raising my concerns on the cuts facing local schools and policing – as well as issues on fire safety in Sheffield arising from the tragedy at Grenfell Tower.

After an extraordinary election that defied the pundits, I’m back in Westminster today. I’m hugely grateful to the people of Sheffield Central for the overwhelming support that they gave me last Thursday. It’s been an enormous privilege to represent Sheffield in Parliament for the last seven years and I’m looking forward to continuing where I left off just a few weeks ago. I’ll continue to work for everyone in the constituency, whether you voted for me or not, and continue to base my priorities on your concerns.

The tragic events in Manchester halted campaigning last week as all our thoughts turned to those killed and injured in the appalling attack, and to their families and friends. After the national moment of silence on Thursday I started campaigning again and will be throughout the week ahead. The reception I’ve received has been brilliant and it’s great to see all the posters everywhere (if you want one, get in touch here).  

Knocking on doors, community meetings, Amphifest and hustings – my week ahead, with just 10 days to the election!

I’m looking forward to another week knocking on doors and meeting people – the reception I’ve received has been brilliant and it’s great to see all the posters everywhere (if you want one, get in touch here). Alongside this, I’ll be meeting parents outside schools, visiting the Cherry Tree Project for homeless young people and backing the Princess Diana Award mentoring campaign to connect adults from the world of work with disengaged young people.

I’m really enjoying the election campaign. It’s great to get out knocking on doors and meeting so many people – and I’m hugely grateful for all the support that I’ve received. It’s great to see all the posters and garden stakes going up everywhere (if you want want one, get in touch here). I’ll be knocking on lots more doors in the week ahead – and, in between, there are a few events too.

Hustings, voter registration, Palestine, community pubs and more knocking on doors – some of my week ahead

It's been an incredibly quick turnaround since Theresa May’s surprise announcement, but Parliament will be dissolved a minute after midnight tonight. So after today I’ll cease to be a Member of Parliament, but will instead be a candidate, campaigning to be re-elected as MP for Sheffield Central on 8th June. I’ll keep you in touch with my campaign through my website, and my Facebook page which you can like here.

The 'dissolution' of Parliament and the General Election campaign... my week ahead

After a weekend knocking on doors across Sheffield Central and listening to views about the General Election, I’m back in Westminster this morning for the last week before Parliament is prorogued on Thursday (although formal dissolution isn’t until 3 May). I’ve a full week starting today with Communities and Local Government Questions, when I’ll be asking what Ministers are doing to redress regional variations in adult social care funding.

As I draft this column every week, to keep people in touch with my work as your MP, I’m always aware that things can change quickly. And this week underlines it! I was preparing for the week’s business as Parliament returned today after the Easter Recess, when Theresa May announced her plans for a surprise General Election on 8 June.
