I have been working closely with leaseholders and Sheffield Cladding Action Group for a long time on the problems of flammable cladding and other regulatory failures in high-rise buildings (more here), and today I’ll be speaking in a Parliamentary debate on the issue. Labour has tabled a motion calling on the Government to prioritise the work needed, provide the funding, protect leaseholders from cost and hold those responsible accountable.
After pressing Boris Johnson on the issue of those excluded from the Covid financial support last week, tomorrow I’ll be joining a meeting of the Gaps in Support APPG, of which I’m a member, to discuss some of the specific problems facing those in the creative industries. I’ll also be participating in a meeting of the Gambling Related Harm APPG on affordability checks and gambling caps, as well as joining a discussion with ‘UK in a Changing Europe’ on UK policy choices post-Brexit.
Later in the week I’ll be at a meeting on the Online Harms Bill, to discuss action against abusive deep fake pornography on which I’m currently working with a constituent. I’ll also be meeting with a Manor-based GP practice, joining a briefing on the accessibility of HIV testing, and catching up with Council Cabinet members.
