Your voice in Parliament.
As your MP, part of my job is to represent you in the House of Commons. I’m your voice in Parliament. I also get one vote every time we vote on new laws as a country.
I make speeches, ask questions of the government, work with other MPs to campaign for change and ultimately spend my time trying to make sure the government makes your life better and not worse.
I also work on a number of specific policy areas in Parliament. I’m a pro-European MP, so I’m spending a lot of time fighting to protect local jobs in Bristol. And making sure that your legal rights are protected as part of the Brexit process.
I also want Britain to be ready for the future. So I spend some of my time working on issues related to the digital economy, technology and the environment. Most of that is linked to my role as a Member of the Science & Technology Select Committee and my expertise in data protection and privacy. But I’m also involved in cross-party parliamentary groups, such as the Parliamentary Information, Communications and Technology Forum (“PICTFOR”), and the All Party Parliamentary Group (“AAPG”) on Consumer Rights. And I have a particular interest in renewable energy and the technology needed to support it.
But most of my time is spent being loud and clear about the issues that you’re facing at home in Bristol. That means I campaign on a wide range of issues in Parliament: such as childcare for working parents, and campaigning to properly fund our schools and NHS.
As your voice in Parliament, if you think there’s something that I should be raising that I’m not, then please get in touch.
