A warm welcome to the new Shadow Cabinet team and a heartfelt thank you to those who have left. The Labour Party I lead is focused on the priorities of our country and holding the Conservative Government to account. With Labour, Britain’s best days are ahead.

Moving with speed is crucial to get ahead of #Omicron. We’ve long advocated mask wearing in crowded areas but also need: ▪️Speeded up vaccine campaign. ▪️Clarity from MHRA on antiviral drug Paxlovid & plan for roll out. ▪️Decent sick pay. ▪️Ventilation especially in schools.

Thank you Alex, for being a true champion of Stockton North, and for everything you do for our Party. Your retirement will be much deserved, but I’m pleased we get to work together for longer yet.
🚨 A Personal Announcement 🚨 It has been the privilege of my life to represent the people of Stockton North as the Labour Member of Parliament for nearly 12 years – and I am grateful for the support from my friends across my community and the Party throughout that time.

Serious reform in our social care system is needed. Boris Johnson broke his promise. His social care plan doesn’t fix the burdening costs for people who need care. It does the opposite - it’s a working-class dementia tax. express.co.uk/comment/expres…

For lives to be lost in such dangerous and desperate circumstances is a devastating and heartbreaking tragedy. The UK Government, France and the wider international community have a duty to prevent people from being forced into such peril. bbc.co.uk/news/uk-59406355

Tonight we voted against the Health & Care Bill. The wrong bill at the wrong time. The NHS is in crisis - another top down reorganisation is a distraction. Care cap is a con, staff shortages not fixed, a power grab for ministers & no safeguards re private health contracting.

Tory broken promises on health and social care: ❌ 6000 more GPs ditched ❌ 40 new hospitals unachievable ❌ A care con which means poorer people will lose their homes You can’t trust the Tories on the NHS.

A touching service at Westminster Cathedral in honour of Sir David Amess. His lifetime of public service was marked by members of all parties as we came together to mourn his death and celebrate his life. May he rest in peace.

Labour is, and always will be, the party of working people. A Labour government will work with businesses to solve the skills shortages and equip the next generation for work.

It's always a pleasure to participate in @MitzvahDay - a Jewish-led day of social action - with @sh_synagogue and support their incredible work. Mitzvah Day is special for many reasons. I'm always struck by how it brings different faiths and communities together to help others.

I am proud that Labour is the first party to achieve 50:50 representation in Parliament, but there's more to do. There’s still twice as many men than women on most UK elected bodies. If you know someone who’d make a great representative, #AskHerToStand 5050parliament.co.uk/signupt…
