I was invited by Niah of The Junior Leadership Team at Abbey Grange School to speak to students about the importance of politics, the General Election and my job as a Member of Parliament. 

The students reached out to all representatives of the major political parties directly because they believe politics is very important to them and wanted to learn more about our political process. I was thrilled to accept their invitation and speak about my experiences.

Wonderful to see Armley Town Street looking green and cared for with the new planters. These planters belong to the people of Armley and will be maintained by Town Street businesses. 

Thank you to 'All Together Armley' for listening to the residents desire for a more floral Town Street and delivering after months of negotiation. 

I can't wait to see them fully in bloom.

Back in February I visited Farnley reservoir with Yorkshire Water, who look after the site, after local residents got in touch with me to raise concerns about its condition. We had a constructive meeting and talked about what more could be done to make the area cleaner.

This weekend, I appeared on Sunday Politics to talk about the issues that really matter in the General Election. I discussed the Metro Mayor elections and the reasons why Leeds, and the rest of Yorkshire, should be given greater powers to make the decisions which affect local people.

I also spoke about the dangers to local jobs and industry posed by an extreme Brexit but also how it is vitally important we recognise local people want to talk about more than just Brexit, they want to know who will stand up for families on low pay and people who feel insecure at work.

That is what I believe this General Election should truly be about.
