Congratulations to @halfon4harlowMP for his hard work to bring Public Health England to #Harlow #PartyOfWorkers


Yesterday I held some important meetings in Parliament with the Care Quality Commission, the West Essex Clinical Commissioning Group and the Health Minister Philip Dunne MP to discuss the future of health care and our hospital in Harlow. I am very pleased the Phillip Dunne will be visiting Princess Alexandra Hospital with me in the next couple of weeks. ... See MoreSee Less

I was delighted to hold my 5th Annual Harlow Jobs and Apprenticeships Fair on Friday. The day was a great success that saw hundreds of visitors coming to see over 60 businesses and organisations that were exhibiting.

I am very grateful to Harlow College, London Stansted Airport and DMG MORI for sponsoring the event and making it all possible. Harlow Jobcentre, Seetec, Ingeus and the Harlow & District Chamber of Commerce were also a great help in organising the day.

It was a pleasure to have BBC Essex supporting the event too. They brought along the BBC Bus for visitors to find out more about a career in journalism and try out reading the weather. I had a lot of fun giving it a go myself! Other than the fantastic BBC Essex, the stand-out exhibitor had to be GU Puds who were giving out free deserts all day! They are opening a factory in Bishops Stortford next year and will be creating a wide range of jobs for Harlow residents.

It is great news that unemployment in Harlow is continuing to fall. As of September, the total number unemployed claimants in Harlow was 991. This is 97 lower than in September 2015 and 16 lower than in August 2016.

I’ve already had some great feedback from exhibitors who have found some brilliant new potential employees. There are lots of job and apprenticeship opportunities coming back to Harlow and I am so pleased to be able to help residents access them with my Jobs Fair each year. Best of luck to everyone who applied for a job or apprenticeship there.

Thank you again to everyone who came and I look forward to seeing everyone there again next year!

BioRob lives in Harlow, and was first elected Member of Parliament in 2010 and was re-elected in the 2015 General Election. He was promoted to Deputy Chairman of the Conservative Party and now attends Cabinet as a Minister without portfolio in May 2015.

Over the last five years, Robert Halfon has run a number of high-profile campaigns, including Petrol Promise, which called on the Government to lower fuel duty and cut petrol and diesel costs for hard-pressed motorists.

By the end of the last Parliament, he had successfully convinced George Osborne to scrap or delay every planned fuel duty increase since this Government came to power and the Chancellor thanked him in one of his Budgets for his work on this issue.
