THE WEEK IN WESTMINSTER #9

Obviously there is only one subject on most people’s minds; however I would like to keep this weekly post reflecting the variety of work I have been up to both in Westminster and back in Newcastle.

THE WEEK IN WESTMINSTER #8

My major news this week was in the constituency, where we had a very successful official shop opening on Friday afternoon. I owe particular thanks to all my staff, especially Office Manager Graham Hutton who has been responsible for securing the lease and fitting out the shop.

Shop sign up!

I am currently in Westminster but my team in Newcastle have kindly sent me a photo of the sign above my new shop which looks pretty smart. We are at 3 Queens Parade, ST5 1RW, directly opposite Castle House.

THE WEEK IN WESTMINSTER #7

My apologies that this update is late this week, but I have spent most of the weekend celebrating my younger brother's wedding! Getting married on Leap Year Day is a very sneaky way to avoid forgetting your anniversary...

Walleys Landfill Debate in Parliament

Thank you to everyone who messaged me in advance of this debate: as you can see I was able to quote some of your emails during my speech.

THE WEEK IN WESTMINSTER #6

This week I have chosen three photos to illustrate that the MPs across North Staffordshire (me, Jo Gideon MP, Jonathan Gullis MP, Jack Brereton MP and Karen Bradley MP) are working together in the best interests of the wider area.

Aaron elected to the Science & Technology Select Committee

I was delighted to be elected to the Science & Technology Select Committee today.

This Committee exists "to ensure that Government policy and decision-making are based on good scientific and engineering advice and evidence."

THE WEEK IN WESTMINSTER #5

Monday was a very exciting day, because it was the first day for the majority of my new staff. I have one member of staff assisting me in London, and the rest are staffing my shop / office in Newcastle.

Welcoming Newcastle College to Parliament

It was great to welcome Jane, Joanne & Daniel from Newcastle College to Parliament to celebrate their nomination for “Promoting Apprenticeships campaign of the Year” - and I wish them all the best for the awards in March!
