My Work in Parliament
I regularly take part in debates, vote on important legislation and raise issues in Westminster that I believe deserve attention.
I have spoken in the House of Commons on a whole range of issues in my time as an MP from animal welfare to climate change and from rail links to hospital trusts. For a list of all the business of parliament, records of debates and current news visit;
