On 31st July I wrote to the Foreign Secretary, Philip Hammond MP, on the Ebola crsis in West Africa.  Camberwell and Peckham has the largest West African diaspora in the country and my constituents will be very concerned about the situation in Sierra Leone, Liberia, Guinea and Nigeria.  Many will be worried about family members and close friends in their country of origin and will want to know that the UK Government is doing everything it can to help the affected countries.

BAME Reception
The BAME Labour Executive and Labour Party hosted a reception for members, supporters, MPs, Councillors and Parliamentary Candidates this evening. The event was attended by over 150 people from across the country – from Bradford to Plymouth. I spoke about the important role our BAME members will play in the General Election campaign and how it is only the Labour party speaking up for BAME communities. And when it comes to representation Labour has more BAME MPs than the other parties put together but we still aspire to do better and be more representative of the general population.
