Brussels diary – 25th May

13 Jun , 2018  

• With my colleague Julie Ward, I welcomed constituents to the European Parliament and discussed youth engagement with politics.

• In the European Parliament Foreign Affairs Committee, I condemned the Israeli army’s despicable actions at the border with Gaza after the US embassy opening.

• I hosted an event with the British Medical Association to discuss the medical professions concerns about a badly negotiated Brexit. We sent out a powerful message that patient care must not be negatively affected by ideological decisions. I support the BMA’s call for clarity for the healthcare staff working in the UK currently who might leave because of Brexit.
