Eye-catching announcements are easy — delivery is hard. As I pointed out to the Chancellor quoting his record this afternoon:

In 1948, rebuilding from the devastation of World War Two, the Labour Government created our National Health Service. Today, it remains our proudest achievement.
Labour will always protect it so that it can protect you.

On this day in 1928, the passing of the Equal Franchise Act granted equal voting rights to both men and women from the age of 21. Thank you to everyone who fought for this landmark change. #EqualFranchiseAct

This Sunday is an incredibly special day – the 72nd anniversary of our wonderful National Health Service. Aneira Thomas was the first baby born in the NHS and was named after its founder, Labour’s own Nye Bevan.

Has there ever been a year when we have all owed more to the incredible staff of our National Health Service?

My question to the Home Secretary demanding justice for a Windrush constituent.

I've written to my MP, @BarryGardiner, asking him to support BA workers. #BAbetreyal #FightBack #PeopleOverProfit

Tried to raise it on Politics Live today but was squeezed for time.
Businesses need support but it is supposed to be a JOB RETENTION scheme; NOT a cover for a company restructure, mass redundancies and reduction of terms and conditions

Pleased to have got a seat in the Chamber to support @RupaHuq for her Bill to stop harrassment and intimidation of vulnerable women seeking a legal abortion.

Lockdown meant I only received this beautiful card from my Grenfell family today. Their plea for justice must not be ignored.

Our colleague Jo Cox devoted so much of her working life in Oxfam and parliament to international development. That Johnson should have chosen the anniversary of her death to abolish DFID is sickening.

The end of DfID as an independent Dept. shows how weak this PM is. His MPs have lost confidence in him & so he throws another sop to the far right. Abandoning the world’s poorest will gain no respect for “Global Britain”

‘’This is a welcome U-turn from the government and a victory for the 1.3 million children who were at risk of going hungry this summer." - @RLong_Bailey

Congratulations to all concerned but most of all to @MarcusRashford for huge moral leadership

If you are a small business in Brent that has been affected by the Coronavirus pandemic, you may be eligible for a grant of £5,000 to help cover your fixed costs. ⁦@ShamaTatler⁩ ⁦@Brent_Council

I have been working with the council to clarify government guidelines and urge affected businesses to take up Cllr. Butt’s offer. We need to support our businesses through this crisis.

Marcus, thank you very much for using your platform to help others that need it most. I fully support your letter and urge the government to extend the food voucher scheme for children over the summer.
