Brussels Diary 7th July

It's the end of my first week as an MEP! Busy week in Strasbourg being the new boy in the Socialists and Democrats Group in the European Parliament. We've been voting on key issues such as EU-Turkey relations and ensuring multinational companies make public the amount of tax they pay in each EU country.

Going forward, it's an honour to represent the North West as your MEP, and I will strive to ensure the region gets the best out of the Brexit negotiations.

Further updates to come!
