This from @KateGreenSU today is vitally important. The Govt frankly should have announced a fee waiver for schools already. https://t.co/mdrP3suVuH

That’s why, in the interests of fairness for our young people, I’ll be doing all I can to support schools in their appeals & to back @UKLabour demands for the Govt to waive the results appeal fees. It would be a further national travesty to make schools pay to right these wrongs.

13 Aug 2020, 10:24 p.m. Seema Malhotra (Labour (Co-op) - Feltham and Heston)

Local schools I have spoken to today have been shocked by the downgrading they have seen from a “biased and blunt algorithm that had no connection at all with either the student, their prior attainment, ability, track record or the Centre Assessed grades”. 1/2

Utterly extraordinary. Education has been very poorly handled by the Govt from the beginning of this crisis. Even a small number of laptops for some of those most in need took three months to arrive. This looks more like a Govt desperate to shift the narrative & protect itself. https://t.co/NnDPyJiOSd

To all receiving A-Level results in F&H and across the country. We know you have had a very tough time & we are proud of you. You deserved better than this chaos and I’ve written to heads to ask about any issues & concerns. I wish you every success today & in your next steps.⭐️

Today's employment figures confirm what we feared – Britain is in the midst of a jobs crisis. The Government must put an end to this & adopt a more flexible approach targeted at sectors who need it most. @BBCNews https://t.co/TqZWaLYi3D

10 Aug 2020, 4:08 p.m. Seema Malhotra (Labour (Co-op) - Feltham and Heston)

This confirms what many businesses have been saying for months – the removal of government support while some businesses have yet to even open their doors again has created a jobs crisis. Govt must adopt a tailored approach to prevent even more redundancies. https://t.co/VIdC0EDt20

I fully support our aviation workers protesting to save UK aviation. ✈ @RishiSunak must do the right thing and give our industry the support package he promised to make it through the Covid-19 crisis. #SaveOurAirports #SaveAviationJobs. @unitetheunion @UnitePolitics https://t.co/oFX55qI3bs

@ratchelkab @Hounslow_Labour Many thanks Rachel. We do have sessions planned for across Feltham and Heston too that will be coming up soon.

@DylanBrownie1 Thanks Dylan and happy birthday to you too! 🎂🎈

1,431 @LBofHounslow families hit by the benefit cap in May, up 108% since Feb, with those on UC losing out £290 month - worse than the UK average. This must serve as a wakeup call. Labour has repeatedly called for scrapping the cap to avoid the picture seen today. @RuthCadbury

6 Aug 2020, 3:40 p.m. Seema Malhotra (Labour (Co-op) - Feltham and Heston)

My piece in the @DailyMirror today. The astonishing 93% rise in families hit by the benefit cap must serve as a wakeup call. The cap is causing families mostly with children to lose an average of £248 a month. The Govt must act on today’s figures and scrap the benefit cap. 👇 https://t.co/doZhpoZcQV

6 Aug 2020, 2:04 p.m. Seema Malhotra (Labour (Co-op) - Feltham and Heston)

6/6 The Govt must target support at those most in need, rather than pursuing a one size fits all approach. Ending the cap would put much needed cash into the pockets of Britain’s poorest families, helping them through this crisis without a devastating increase in household debt.

6 Aug 2020, 2:04 p.m. Seema Malhotra (Labour (Co-op) - Feltham and Heston)

5/6 This is a policy that is pushing children and families into poverty. With around eight job seekers for every vacancy, rising to 20 in some parts of the country, this is a Government totally out of touch with the reality of people’s lives. https://t.co/AlE6EJDRUw

6 Aug 2020, 2:04 p.m. Seema Malhotra (Labour (Co-op) - Feltham and Heston)

3/6 Labour along with the IFS, Child Poverty Action Group and over 50 organisations called for the benefits cap to be suspended three months ago. The Government failed to listen, and as a result 150,000 families are now £248 a month worse off on average. https://t.co/4scOBkxE6y

6 Aug 2020, 2:04 p.m. Seema Malhotra (Labour (Co-op) - Feltham and Heston)

4/6 These figures must serve as a wakeup call to the Government. Labour has repeatedly called on the Government to scrap the benefit cap to avoid the picture we are seeing today. https://t.co/LJ2Rc0a5hg

6 Aug 2020, 2:04 p.m. Seema Malhotra (Labour (Co-op) - Feltham and Heston)

1/6 Benefit figures published today by the DWP show a shocking rise in the number of households affected by the benefit cap. 154,000 families across the country saw their benefits reduced by £248 per month on average in May. https://t.co/qSxghlEEVq

6 Aug 2020, 2:04 p.m. Seema Malhotra (Labour (Co-op) - Feltham and Heston)

2/6 A 93% ⬆️ since February & the largest spike in capped households since April 2013. Almost 2/3s of families affected are single parent households. Shockingly 86% of currently capped households include children. https://t.co/gdOsdjPTnB

Take a minute to say what you think the Government should do for you and the local economy in your area. https://t.co/1bfGC88j2a

@borzou Mixed reports of those injured but it would seem very likely that there will be casualties. Thinking of all who are affected and the extraordinary firefighters and emergency services who will be rushing to help.

It's the 150th anniversary of the @BritishRedCross which has brought the power of kindness to life since 1870. Today, they continue to support those who need it most, no matter who or where they are, in the UK and overseas. https://t.co/giN5RhWCUa #BritishRedCross150 https://t.co/8OcxKE4W9N

@Andywarholemail @PlantSwatch1 My tomato plants have grown really large and taken over somewhat! Will need to do a bit of trimming back! But the sunflowers are looking magnificent. Can’t wait for them to flower!

This letter makes clear that much more must be done to stop young disabled job seekers being left behind resulting in a lost COVID generation. Conversations I’ve had with charities suggest job centres need specialist advisory support in place - and they need it now. https://t.co/E3ne1UCOty

Today @UKLabour is launching its jobs, jobs, jobs campaign. We can’t bounce back if we’re stuck in a jobs crisis. The fight for jobs is a fight for a better future. https://t.co/FooQ6k5uYn

29 Jul 2020, 4:27 p.m. Seema Malhotra (Labour (Co-op) - Feltham and Heston)

I’ve written to the Minister for Employment after meeting with her to stress why a jobs plan must have a skills plan, how we must plan ahead for the Kickstart scheme to ensure it is a success, and why the Govt must suspend benefit sanctions during COVID19. Read more below 👇 https://t.co/SE1KJBbzuA

Feltham & Heston residents, are you or your family facing worries with your personal or household finance as a result of Covid-19? Please fill out this online survey by 21st August 2020. https://t.co/yopLr58PJ8

As West London MPs this is our 3rd letter to @alex_cruz requesting a meeting to secure a better outcome for workers at BA, instead of the disgraceful treatment employees have endured so far. @TanDhesi @johnmcdonnellMP @RupaHuq @RuthCadbury @jamesmurray_ldn @VirendraSharma https://t.co/ClAYSYrLAi

I joined the @ExcludedUK APPG to represent the 3m excluded from Govt coronavirus support schemes. It's vital these schemes are effective to protect incomes, jobs and businesses. I will cont to urge Govt to fill the gaps & end its 1-size-fits-all approach to withdrawing support. https://t.co/9qLcsfkoEF

This from the @guardian is a v thought provoking read: “I am interested only in the hard facts as to what does and does not work in reducing crime, improving lives and, first and foremost, preventing as many people as possible from becoming victims.” 👇🏽 https://t.co/TRYjKieVip
