This week I asked Ministers at the Department for International Development about funding for Palestinian schools named after terrorists and Nazi collaborators.

We can be proud that some UK aid goes to the salaries of Palestinian teachers, but the names of these schools concerned me.

Listen to what the Minister said in his reassuring response below...

The Conservative Government has made great progress in education, especially in rising school standards.

Like Damian Hinds, the new Education Secretary says, there's always more that can be done and he is ready to step up to the mark.

I have been contacted by a number of Harlow constituents and businesses in the town about the Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation and Liability for Housing Standards) Bill.

The Rt Hon Sajid Javid MP, Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, sent me this letter outlining the Government's support for the Bill.

The bill is in line with the Conservative Government's commitment to strengthen tenants' rights and protect renters against bad practice. Good news for renters in Harlow!

N THIS PLACE – Ep. 1 Backbench Business

Watch the first ‘episode’ of a social media series I will be publishing every week about what I get up to as Harlow’s MP.

Despite Westminster and Harlow being only 30 miles apart, Parliament can feel like a world away. I wanted to find a way to communicate what I’m doing to build an even better Harlow even when I’m not out and about in the town.

Each week I will publish a video, like this, focusing on one aspect of my work in Parliament, whether it’s related to a campaign or explaining one of the many intricacies of British politics.

First up is Backbench Business. This week I went to the Backbench Business Committee to apply for a debate on hospital car parking charges.

Watch the video below to find out more – it’s only a minute long, let me know what you think!

Yesterday I asked Ministers at the Department for Transport about hospital car parking charges.

Many hospitals around the country are difficult to reach on public transport. For that reason, I asked the Minister to write to the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, urging him to abolish hospital car parking charges.

I will continue to campaign on this issue and raise it in the House of Commons to bring an end to this stealth tax on drivers using the NHS.
