I speak in parliament against the public sector pay cap

uq_screencap.png

Today, I spoke in parliament about the need for the public sector pay cap to be lifted. Norwich has three NHS trusts, two local authorities and a teaching hospital. Thousands of public sector workers contribute to our economy but, at present, are struggling to make ends meet. Invest in these people, lift the public sector pay cap and you invest in Norwich’s economy. It’s a win-win situation for everyone.

Here is my letter in full.

In their paper thin Queen’s Speech, the government claims it will protect the science, research and technology sectors which are so crucial to the economic future of our city. I’ve spoken many times to people in these sectors in Norwich and they tell me that above all else it’s Brexit and the form it takes which will have the biggest impact on their prospects. Watch this video to find out why.

Over the weekend, #GreatGetTogether events were held up and down the country to bring communities together to celebrate the life of Jo Cox.

I was delighted to see events taking place all across Norwich, and was able to join the picnic Bignold Primary School hosted for the occasion. At the school, a total of 47 different languages are spoken: a wonderful example of how "we have more in common than which divides us"!

The other day, I dropped by #LearningDisabilityVote2017 - a fantastic event that gives those with a learning disability the chance to engage in #GE2017 and have the election made more accessible to them - and had the opportunity to learn some sign language.

"Hello, my name is Clive Lewis and I am a Labour politician. Thank you."

It's a start!
