I was very pleased to attend the Greenpeace presentation in Parliament last week which focused on plastics in our rivers. I received a copy of their informative new report “Upstream: Microplastics in UK Rivers”, which you can read here as an attachment below.
We have 2 exceptionally talented candidates in the final round and I look forward to listening over the coming weeks to a proper, full and frank debate. I am happy to reveal now that my preference is for Boris.
On Saturday it was that time of year again for one of my favourite events of the constituency calendar – the Worthing Children’s Parade. This was the 12th parade and 12th time I have had the privilege to act as compere welcoming the schools as they processed into Steyne Gardens.
On Thank a Teacher Day, I pay tribute to all the teachers across East Worthing and Shoreham. I also expressed concern in PMQs that a recent Department for Education report showed that children in coastal areas achieve lower grades than elsewhere.
A marathon week ahead video from a fantastically busy week - ranging from my productive Extinction Rebellion meeting, Big Ben facts, the Worthing Children’s Parade (with special guest David Walliams) and the latest on the leadership race.
I welcomed the announcement that the UK will become the first major economy in the world to end its contribution towards global warming, as the Conservative Government introduces a new law to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
