I have commented today on Cuts to the Equalities and Human Rights Commission in todays Sunday Herald, which will result on those who are victims of Hate Crime no longer receiving the support they need.
Evening Times Report on today’s Westminster Hall Debate on Glasgow JobCentres closures.
Today I attended the launch of the Workers Rights (Maintenance of EU Standards) Bill, moved by Melanie Onn MP which I have co-sponsored.
Workers Protections introduced via the EU including the Equal Treatment Directive, Part Time.Workers Directive Agency Workers Directive, Working Time Directive, Fixed Term.Workers Directive and the EU Collective.Redundancy Regulations have all been responsible for protecting jobs, improving pay and terms and conditions.
It is vital therefore that those protections remain in place.
