I recently met with the Chairman of Crossrail, Terry Morgan, to discuss the progress that Europe’s largest infrastructure project is making and in particular what Crossrail will bring to the table in terms of benefits to my constituents in Ealing Southall.
This month has seen some very big decisions that will affect my constituency, Ealing borough, London and the United Kingdom for a very long time to come.
Last week, I visited St Bernard’s Hospital, for a tour of the Wolsey Wing; one of its newly refurbished buildings. Since spring 2013, the wing has housed many of the local mental health services provided for Ealing residents, so I was eager to see the building, find out how service delivery has improved and discuss the trust’s plans for the future of the site.
For World Hepatitis Day, I hosted an event along with the Hepatitis C Trust in my constituency, to help raise awareness about hepatitis C amongst the Asian Community. Free testing was also made available onsite for residents to use.
I was invited to give a talk to A Level Sociology and Politics students at Featherstone High School. It was a great opportunity to talk to students about the role of Government, of elected representatives and about local and national issues.
On 20th June, I welcomed Members of Parliament from other Commonwealth countries as part of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association (CPA) visit to my constituency. I host the CPA visit annually hoping to provide delegates with an insight into the diversity and multiculturalism of Southall.
