14 August 2017
The Lamplighters are looking for support to gain £10,000 of funding for their brilliant community project
Kerry has recently been in contact with Bristol Dementia Services, who have produced a film in 6 languages (Urdu, Punjabi, Cantonese, Somali, Polish and English) to help raise awareness around dementia diagnoses.
Innovative thinking, like the launch of the bio-gas bus, is a necessary step we must take in order to reduce air pollution in Bristol.
Whether it's reading for pleasure or for learning, access to books is important for all of us, and libraries play a crucial part in this. Wick Road Library also functions as a community space where people living in Brislington can come together and socialise, or use the computers if they don't have one at home
Making CCTV compulsory is a step in the right direction to ensure slaughter houses are complying with animal welfare law, and workers aren't inflicting unnecessary cruelty. I was an early supporter of this campaign, having seen terrible footage obtained by undercover investigations, but until now the Government had refused to act, so this is very welcome news.
Kerry is thrilled to hear from blood cancer charity Anthony Nolan that 714 Bristol East constituents are on the stem cell donor list. But we can still do more.
I welcome the Government’s announcement that it is putting £3.4 million towards improving roads in the West of England, and in particular, that Scotland Lane, in Stockwood, is one of the roads scheduled for improvements. A crucial road, Scotland Lane is the direct route from Stockwood to Brislington schools, Saint Brendan's College and Bristol Park and Ride, and used by many people getting to work in the morning, but has regularly flooded, meaning long detours. I've been pressing the Council about this, and backed the bid for extra funding. I hope improvement work begins on this road, and others, very soon.

The week ahead

Week beginning 24th July

Parliament is now in recess, and will return on Tuesday September 5th. Brexit negotiations will of course continue. The EU Withdrawal Bill - formerly referred to as the Great Repeal Bill - was published shortly before recess and MPs will be spending the summer break scrutinising it in fine detail. Kerry will also be using recess to catch up on local meetings, e.g. with the Police & Crime Commissioner and Chief Constable; with the Council to discuss its budget consultation; and with the Feeding Bristol steering group. Kerry will also be spending some time in the USA with the British-American Parliamentary Group, meeting members of Congress and other lawmakers, with a particular focus on UK-US trade talks and a post-Brexit deal.
