It was an honour to join the picket line this morning in solidarity against the appalling employment practices of SPS Technologies in Leicester.
It is beyond shameful that SPS is now exploiting this terrible pandemic, which has hit Leicester harder than most places, as an opportunity to attack workers’ terms and conditions.
As the MP for Leicester East, I will always stand in full solidarity with all Leicester East workers. In parliament, and in our community, I will keep doing everything in my power to bring justice to SPS employees and all Leicester workers.

The teaching of Black History should be compulsory in our schools.
This week, the Conservatives voted against protecting leaseholders – they broke their promise again.
Four years on from Grenfell, leaseholders in my constituency should not have to fund dangerous cladding and other fire safety defects.
I voted to protect leaseholders, they are not to blame.

I am proud to endorse Ian Byrne MP’s campaign that every child should have the right to learn without being hungry. Learning on an empty stomach is hurting children’s life chances.

I have signed this joint letter to Boris Johnson with other MP’s and peers after our recent grief of the abduction on Sarah Everard and to work towards ending male violence against women and girls.
You can see the letter below.
I’m proud to be amongst the first 100 MPs demanding decisive action on the climate and ecological emergency by supporting the CEE bill.

Her name was Sarah Everard. Devastating.
Women are more likely to;
- Lose their jobs
- Fall through the gap in government support
- Be furloughed
- Have had a 20% pay cut
- Be on the frontline in healthcare, education & hospitality
- Be working longer & harder
COVID-19 has exposed & added to the inequalities women face.
I will continue to fight for women in my constituency of Leicester East.

I submitted a written question to the State for Justice Department raising the question of whether he will make an assessment of the effectiveness of the unconscious bias training made available to the judiciary.
I await a response from the relevant Government Minister.
Stay tuned to my blogs and I will update everyone when a response is received.
Exploitation in Leicester’s garment industry. Billionaires exist when and where employees are exploited. We cannot allow textile companies to keep getting away with this predatory business model, in which corporate profits are prioritised above human rights and wellbeing.
The government must finally act to end the scourge of exploitation in Leicester, across the UK and around the world. No longer should firms like boohoo hide behind the claim that companies in its supply chain are ‘third party’ businesses that they have no responsibility for.See my article for Politics Home here.
This is what an NHS GP-led service looks like. A really great achievement by the entire community. Leicester leading the way.
I fully support the joint letter organised by Jamie Stone MP that expresses concern over the deportation case of Osime Brown.
