Coronavirus - Information and Help

Whilst the Government at last seems to be taking action, it has been too slow. They have not gone far enough in protecting both people’s health and finances. I will continue to challenge the Government, work across party lines when necessary, on issues that concern you. I will fight to make sure that you are safe, get the medical treatment you need and can survive this crisis financially.

Transport

Working alongside Leeds City Council and the Combined Transport Authority, Alex is pushing for better train stations and line electrification, cleaner public transport (hybrid buses & cycling schemes) and tackling congestion with enhancements to road infrastructure.

Employment

Work should empower people and provide them with financial security and fulfilment. Since 2010, there has been a huge increase in insecure and poorly paid work. In Parliament, Alex will support the Labour Party’s drive to secure a living wage, ban zero-hours contracts and enhance workplace rights.

Swift action to combat climate change is necessary to save this planet – it’s the only home we have. Alex is working towards a carbon-free future for the UK by supporting investment in new green technologies, scrutinising the Government from his position on the Environmental Audit Committee and campaigning for improved public transport in and around Leeds.
