My work in
Home Affairs Select Committee
Crime is becoming a bigger and bigger issue in my constituency and elsewehere. The Home Affairs Select Committee, of which I am am a member, is doing a number of inquiries into issues that I believe are extremely relevant to residents living in Birmingham Edgbaston.
Our current inquiries are focussing on "Policing for the Future", immigration and the consequences of Brexit. You can watch the work of the Committee by clicking here. You can let me have your views by using the "contact me" page.
APPG on Mentoring
The Diana Award Campaign has successfully highlighted the amazing impact that mentoring can have on a young person.
It's empowering, potentially life changing and can be particularly significant for those young people who for other reasons have limited opportunities. I am a staunch supporter of increasing the numbers of mentors both in Birmingham Edgbaston and across the country. I currently lead the All Party Parliamentary Group on Mentoring in Parliament.
