This week saw an important debate take place on “Meat Slaughtered in Accordance with Religious Rites”. I argued in favour of Schechita, which the Prime Minister reaffirmed his support for during a visit to Israel earlier in the year.
I also had the pleasure of attending the Stonewall Awards which celebrated the work of LGBT campaigners throughout the year.
One of the highlights of the week was a visit to Holy Trinity Primary School in East Finchley. It was great to meet up with staff and pupils and I look forward to visiting again in the future. I addressed the year 4 PHSE class and spoke about my role as an MP.
I had another busy weekend this week. I took my Mobile Surgery to Hampstead Heights, East Finchley, to meet local residents. A range of topics were discussed including expansion plans for the nearby Oak Lodge School.
On Saturday, I attended the National Peace Symposium held by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association. Constituents asked if I would be willing to attend.
I was privileged to attend the Remembrance services at Golders Green on Sunday. It was a poignant reminder of the sacrifices of the many men and women who gave their lives to protect our freedoms. The service was organised by the Rotary Club of Golders Green.
