Tackling Local Issues

I actively take up the specific concerns of constituents and turn them into campaigns if I believe I can help.

Throughout my time in Parliament I have initiated debates on key local issues - Metropolitan Police Resourcing; Future of St Bartholomew’s Hospital; Recycling Household Waste; Congestion Charging; Commercialisation of Hyde Park; Implementation of the Licensing Act 2003; Independence of the City of London Police; Population Estimates; and Social Housing in London.

I have regularly contributed to debates on issues affecting the capital, including London’s role in the UK economy, the London Underground, Crossrail, the London Olympics bid, ID cards, gun crime, and various environmental and quality of life issues.I was also involved with the battle to secure the future development of the two local hospitals, Bart’s and St Mary’s, and am a champion for leaseholder rights over the changes in the Commonhold and Leasehold Reform Bill.
