Brussels Diary - 18th September 2017

Check out what I've done as your MEP last week in Strasbourg - in addition to lots of votes and committee meetings, I did the following: 

 Spoke twice in the chamber on the issue of the situation in Myanmar and the suffering of the Rohingya - I played an active role in getting the resolution passed by the European Parliament (find the text of the resolution here http://www.europarl.europa.eu/sides/getDoc.do… ).  
 Met with the Bangladesh Ambassador to the EU to discuss the almost 400,000 Rohingyas displaced during the current violence in Myanmar, as well as EU-Bangladesh relations
 Spoke on the need for an EU Fire Safety strategy in the wake of the terrible Grenfell Tower tragedy. 
 Met with representatives from the EEF, the voice of British Manufacturing, to hear what manufacturers are saying about the current state of play in Brexit negotiations - I hope to visit some of them soon. 

All the best for the coming week, WK.
