Brexit dominates my week again. Today I’ll be looking out for the expected publication of the UK’s post-Brexit border operating model (after an extraordinary leaked letter showed concern at the heart of the Cabinet), on Wednesday I’m speaking for Labour’s front bench in an Opposition Day debate on Brexit called by the SNP, and on Thursday I’ll be challenging Michael Gove at Cabinet Office Questions.
I’ll be meeting with Unison on their concerns over Brexit, discussing the issue at the weekly meetings of the Shadow Cabinet Office and Shadow International Trade teams, and monitoring the ongoing talks between the UK and the EU.
Away from Brexit, I’ll be joining Shadow Cabinet Office colleagues on the front bench for the Parliamentary Constituencies Bill which sets the rules for constituency boundaries to be re-drawn across the country, and participating in All-Party Parliamentary group meetings of the Choice at the End of Life APPG, of which I’m a Vice-Chair, and the Refugees APPG with to the Independent Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration.
On Friday I’ll be joining other Sheffield MPs for one of our regular fortnightly meetings with Council Cabinet members to discuss action on Covid-19 as lockdown measures continue to be eased.
