IT'S BEEN another incredibly busy week in both the constituency and Westminster.

On Friday, I was out and about in Penarth, visiting the Railway to see the results of the recent £250,000 investment.

It was good to meet the team, exciting to see the improvements, and great that it was packed full of people enjoying lunch.

I also spent time in the afternoon speaking to a documentary maker who was here to meet a number of Penarth residents who have experienced problems with unfair fines from private parking companies, and who I and my team have helped.

This is an issue I’ve been campaigning on for a long time now, and I supported a change in the law on this during the last Parliament, so I’m pleased to be able to help shine a light on these practices.

I’ve been speaking up on a range of issues in Parliament this past week, including on the recent Flybe collapse, and in a debate to mark International Women’s Day when I said: “I thank the hon. Lady for giving way. She is speaking passionately about Malawi.

"I have also visited Malawi and spent time with women’s organisations doing fantastic work.

"If she has been in Malawi, she will know the impact that HIV/AIDS has had.

"AIDS is still the leading cause of death for women between 15 and 49 worldwide.

"UNAIDS has released a report today highlighting the gendered nature of HIV/AIDS for women.

"Does she agree that we need to do all we can through our aid budget to tackle that?”

This past week we’ve seen continued chaos around Priti Patel and goings-on at the Home Office.

"We had our first meeting of the Home Affairs Committee last week, working out our agenda for the months ahead - there are a whole range of issues we need to look at including the new immigration system, what’s happening with Brexit, policing, and more.

Meanwhile the Coronavirus situation remains very worrying. We’ve had a series of briefings in Parliament and of course from the Welsh Government and the Welsh NHS.

"I would urge everyone to follow the advice, really think about handwashing and keeping yourself safe - particularly if you have an underlying medical condition or something that might make you more susceptible.

"Don’t panic – but follow the advice and make sure you’re taking precautions to protect yourself."
