Last week was another very productive week in the European Parliament! Last week, the usual committee meetings and votes, but here’s what else I’ve done.
It was good to catch up with David Miliband to hear about his role as head of the International Rescue Committee – talked about human rights, particularly in relation to Myanmar and Kashmir.
Labour MEPs met with UK Permanent Representative to the EU Sir Tim Barrow to talk about ongoing Brexit negotiations ahead of December’s European Council meeting.
I met with representatives of the Channel Islands to discuss Brexit and working together for better tax transparency.
I attended a reception hosted by the Ambassador of Oman to the EU to celebrate their National Day.
I spoke with Isaline and Camilla from the European Centre for Democracy and Human Rights about current issues.
With my Labour colleagues I supported the White Ribbon campaign as part of the UN International Day of Elimination of Violence Against Women (Nov 25th)
