Dear friends,

 

I am sure you will have seen some of the coverage of the increasingly desparate refugee crisis growing across Europe.

 

Yvette Cooper, who I am backing to be the next Labour Leader, made a speech earlier in the week lamenting Britain's current position - Germany has given more sanctuary to Syrians in a month than we have in the last year - and calling for the Government and communities across our country to do more.

 

Dear friends,

 

Many of you will have read, in my Winter Newsletter, about the three constituency wide residents meeting that I will be holding between now and the election. They’re on the 3 big issues residents tell me are most important – and I want to hear what you think needs to change in the years ahead.
