I have served as the Labour MP for Leeds North East since 1997 and I am seeking re-election on December 12th. In 2016, I was appointed as Shadow Minister for Peace and Disarmament.
I believe that we need to prioritise the struggle against climate change and deliver the Green New Deal promised by the Labour Party. Protecting our NHS from privatisation and putting a fair Brexit deal back to the people in a second referendum is also one of my priorities. I will campaign to remain in the EU.
Affordable public social housing which has low carbon emissions is essential for our environment and for social stability.
We're a people-powered movement.
