My week starts with a meeting on the EU Settlement Scheme convened by the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Migration, as the deadline for applications approaches at the end of this month. I’m also hoping to question the Health Secretary on the expected statement delaying the further easing of Covid lockdown measures.
I’m also meeting with a representative of the Our Bodies Our Streets campaign, which is working for safer public spaces for women. Later in the week I’ll be visiting local venues that have signed up for the campaign I’ve launched with the Star and other local partners focussing on sexual harassment in the hospitality sector – see more here.
On Tuesday, I’ll be chairing the AGM of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Students, at which we’ll be discussing our activities for the next year, as well as review the work carried out over the last difficult year which you can read more about here.
On Wednesday I’ll be joining an event to name a street on Park Hill after my friend and Labour colleague Councillor Pat Midgley, who was one of the first victims of Covid-19. Also this week I’ll be meeting with City Council leaders, catching up with the Chief Executive of Museums Sheffield meetings, and discussing the impact of Brexit and the Northern Ireland protocol. Over the weekend, I’ll be heading up to Batley to campaign for Labour’s Kim Leadbeater ahead of the by-election on the 1st July.
