Letter to colleagues (Syria Intervention)

Dear Colleagues For those who are still undecided on the forthcoming vote on extending the British Offensive into Syria – I hope you will take a few moments to read a few brief thoughts following my return this weekend from key capitals across the Middle East with the Foreign Affairs Select Committee.

Malaria no more

Today I am marking World Mosquito Day  by joining the campaign to make malaria no more within a generation. Malaria has claimed more lives than any other disease in human history.  Today, it claims the life of a child every minute, despite being preventable and costing less than a cup of tea to treat.  It [...]

Carers Week

This excessive workload is undeniably having a negative impact on teachers; an NUT survey found that 90 per cent of teachers had [...]

Supporting Mental Health concordat in Bolton

I welcome the news that multiple organisations in Bolton have joined together in a mental health concordat in an attempt to join-up mental health provisions in Bolton.
