Elections dominate the week, with council and mayoral elections here in Sheffield, and votes across much of the country in what will be the last major electoral test before the General Election. Business is therefore a bit lighter in Parliament and I’ll be campaigning in the Parliamentary by-election in Blackpool on Wednesday before returning to Sheffield for our elections on Thursday.

Before all of that, I’ll be speaking in a Westminster Hall debate this afternoon on assisted dying, on which I’ve spoken many times before. The debate has been called in response to an e-petition calling for a change in the law, which has now exceeded 200,000 signatures.

On Tuesday I’ll be meeting with journalism students from the University of Sheffield to discuss the impact of government plans for the graduate work visa, before meeting with Universities UK on the issue and then chairing a roundtable of the APPG for International Students on the impact of the recent changes to dependent visas for international students.

I’ll also be meeting with Economic Secretary to the Treasury Bim Afolami about access to Child Trust Funds, an issue I raised with him in the Commons recently.

After the election count on Friday, I’ll be calling in at “Seen. Heard. Valued.” – an exhibition hosted by Sheffield Hallam University showcasing the work being done to combat child poverty in Sheffield by Save the Children and partners.
