Sheffield in Westminster, homelessness, obesity, a customs union and International Workers Memorial Day – some of my week ahead

Today I’m welcoming constituents who are visiting Parliament on one of the regular trips that I organise each year. I’ll also be in the Commons for Defence Questions to press the Secretary of State to back a new HMS Sheffield.  

Tomorrow I’ll be in a Westminster Hall debate on street homelessness to share the concerns of constituents, hoping to speak during Justice Questions, and going to an event about Brexit and the NHS organised by the Nuffield Trust and UK in a Changing Europe.

On Wednesday I’ll be meeting with student housing charity Unipol, the President of the European Research Council and the new Chief Executive of MillionPlus. I’ll also be going to an event organised by the Obesity Health Alliance as part of my work supporting the great Manor-based project Shine Academy, and attending a Sheffield University alumni event.

On Thursday I’ll be going to a meeting about the impact of Brexit on financial services and joining the debate in the Commons on membership of a Customs Union with the EU, initiated by a cross-party group of Select Committee Chairs. Then I’ll be heading back to Sheffield for a monthly meeting of my constituency Labour Party.

On Friday I’ll be speaking at an event for Sheffield Chamber of Commerce and Industry, meeting with the Council to discuss support for people with Special Educational Needs and talking to Age UK Sheffield.

On Saturday I’ll be at an event to mark International Workers Memorial Day before heading to Bramall Lane for the last home game of the season. On both Saturday and Sunday I’ll also be out knocking on doors to hear the views of constituents.
