This morning I have joined many of my parliamentary colleagues in signing the Global Justice Now pledge detailed below. I'm here to represent my constituents in the most difficult of times and help with complex situations and I want them to have the confidence that they can see me without fear.
"As a member of parliament, I pledge to represent and advocate for all people living in my constituency as equal members of the local community, regardless of their immigration status. My constituency and surgery are safe places and I welcome all my constituents to seek representation free from fear of immigration enforcement. I will not report on anyone who seeks my advice to the Home Office for immigration enforcement and will ensure my office correctly handles sensitive personal information to prevent this from happening.”
