Newsnight - Child and Adolescent Mental Health - 04-08-2017

I appeared on Newsnight to discuss the recent Mundy judgement regarding the lack of bed spaces for a young girl who is has mental health illness. She is due to be released in 11 days, but a secure unit place has not yet been found for her - a situation Sir James Munby said was "utterly shaming".

The Cult of Proana

I took part in an investigation into Pro-Anorexia - the vast online community that glamourise Eating Disorders.

Sky News - Public Sector Pay

I discuss the public sector pay cap on Sky News. Whilst I am supportive of removing the cap it must be done in a way which we can afford and not as a cynical amendment tacked onto a Queen's Speech with the sole purpose of trying to bring down the Government.

Sky News - Brexit - Customs Union and No Deal Option

This morning I debated with Hilary Benn on Sky News the benefits of leaving the EU's Customs Union, which currently stops the UK from making our own free trade agreements, and the so-called No Deal Option which is an important part of our negotiating position.

ITV Meridian - The Last Word - Brexit

On ITV Meridian's Last Word I discussed how there is no such thing as 'Hard' or 'Soft' Brexit, there is only Brexit. Last year the public voted for us to take back control of our borders, our money, our laws and our ability to make free trade agreements.

ITV Meridian - The Last Word - Conservative Campaign Analysis

This week I appeared on ITV Meridian's Last Word to discuss the general election campaign, where the Conservatives got it wrong, the future of Theresa May and why school funding for schools in West Sussex will continue to be a key priority for me as your MP.

BBC News - Westminster Attack - 23-03-2017

If the intention was to get into Parliament, cause absolute mayhem and disrupt our democracy then it failed. 

Parliament is getting on with its business we are not going to be undermined by terrorism. This attack has failed and it will always fail. 

Sky News - Schools funding - 21-03-2017

Schools in West Sussex are facing some really difficult financial decisions, including cutting course, not replacing teachers and not purchasing pretty basic equipment.

West Sussex MPs recognise the pressures on our local schools and have been calling for fair funding for some time.
