Reflection of my pub tour as it comes to an end

Last week concluded the end of my summer pub tour meeting my constituents.

I visited pubs and also a café in wards all around my constituency and had many interesting conversations and listened to points of concern.

 I was interested to hear views on a wide range of issues such as welfare, manufacturing, care, NHS, House of Lords, youth services, pensions and many more.

I set out to hear people’s perspectives on the issues that matter to them and the tour was certainly a success in terms of that.

I welcomed the opportunity to have open conversations and being able to respond directly in a casual setting.

I’d like to thank people for coming to meet with me during the past month.

It was clear from my conversations that the economy is one of the bigger concerns that people understandably have and I had a chance to put forward how Labour would tackle some of the issues that were discussed.

We have a number of pledges to address people’s standard of living and also address youth and long term unemployment. Some of these pledges were discussed during my tour.

It was a very worthwhile way of spending the parliamentary recess and I would like to do something similar in the future. During parliamentary term when I am able to I also travel round my constituency to meet with constituents and I find it a good way to meet a number of constituents at once.
