The problems facing students during the pandemic are a major feature of my week. Tomorrow I’m chairing an All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Students roundtable to discuss the evidence submitted to our inquiry on financial compensation as a result of the impact of Covid-19, and during the rest of the week I’ll be working on our recommendations which we hope to publish on Friday. I’ll also be joining a meeting Universities APPG, of which I’m Secretary, on support for students mental health and wellbeing.

Although I’m no longer a Shadow Brexit Minister, I’m still seeking to hold the Tories to account for their damaging deal. Today I am speaking in a webinar organised by Labour for a European Future, on how our relationship with the EU could develop over the coming years. Later I hope to be speaking in a debate in Parliament on workers’ rights, after highlighting Tory post-Brexit plans recently, and tomorrow I’ll challenge the Chancellor on the impact of Johnson’s Brexit deal at Treasury Questions.

Also this week I’m joining a meeting of the S2 Food Poverty Network to discuss new initiatives to challenge food poverty, catching up with Sheffield Citizens’ Advice, talking about support for local businesses at a Barclays seminar, meeting the President of Sheffield Medical Society to discuss health inequalities, reporting to a meeting of local Labour members and attending a ceremony to mark Holocaust Memorial Day Ceremony.
