Jessica Morden (Newport East) (Lab): I was e-mailed last Friday by a woman in my constituency who asked me to attend this debate. She said:

I would ask if you could attend to represent the poverty and daily struggle that can be found in our area. I am writing as a former user myself of the food bank which at the time was a life-saver for me. At the beginning of this year, the DWP sanctioned me for six months due to an administrative error, which I did not ever receive a written apology for. I had to live on £27 a week for six months until my support worker found out and helped to get me back on my feet. I am not a waster or a shirker but having to receive food parcels because you have nothing in your cupboards is embarrassing for anyone. I also know people who work as hard as they can but because of low wages can’t manage.”

The news last week that the Celtic Manor is to be the location of Wales’ first International Convention Centre got a little lost in a busy news week.  The announcement came hot on the heels of news that the NATO summit is to be held in Newport next September. The decision about the Convention Centre, which was backed by a Welsh Government pledge to match funding for the initial stage of the project, is a brilliant opportunity for Newport especially as the location was hotly contested by Cardiff.
