Jessica Morden Jessica Morden - Labour MP for Newport East, Shadown Deputy Leader of the House of Commons and PPS to Keir Starmer
My first report of 2023 has been published and, as always, it covers my work both in Newport East and Severnside, and the work I do on your behalf in Westminster.
The first couple of weeks back in Parliament have been incredibly busy with the government pushing through a number of controversial bills, such as the Strikes (Minimum Service Levels) Bill and the EU Retained Law Bill.
In the constituency it’s been busy too; the worrying idling of Liberty and the news that, once again, both Caldicot and Newport have been overlooked in their bids to the Levelling Up Fund.
In terms of the things I am hearing from constituents, the Cost of Living crisis is still biting hard, with many struggling with bills and keeping the cupboards stocked.
If you’re worried about this or would like to raise any other issues with me, my team and I are always on hand to support you – please do get in touch if we can help with anything.
