I welcome the Prime Minister’s speech in Florence. Theresa May has made clear that Britain is leaving the European Union. Brexit will happen within this Parliament delivering the overwhelming wish of the people of Bloxwich, Willenhall and north Walsall.
Over a hundred Members of Parliament across the political spectrum, including Walsall North MP Eddie Hughes, are backing efforts to get Britain’s Sikh community recognised as a separate ethnic group, by Britain’s official statistics body.
Eddie recently spoke in Parliament on the need to value all workers, and not just public sector workers. He highlighted how Conservative policies such as increasing the minimum wage and increasing the income tax threshold have helped both public and private sector workers.
On Wednesday 13th September, I was delighted to be given permission by the House of Commons to present my Ten Minute Rule Bill to prevent death and injury from Carbon Monoxide Poisoning. I have attached my full speech below.
There is one issue that keeps cropping up on my visits around Walsall North: and it’s Brexit. There is much optimism from people I have met across Bloxwich and Willenhall. After all, the reason that the EU didn’t want the UK to leave shows how much leverage the UK has in negotiations.
