Throughout my time as an MP one of my most important jobs was fighting for those of my constituents who weren't given a fair deal by the Tory government. 

One of the many examples of the Tories failure to stand up for my residents can be seen in the way in which the rise in pension age for women has been implemented. 

Many women, particularly those born in the 50s will not have been given adequate notice of the raise in the state pension age for women due to it being implemented far quicker than originally advised. Some women received no notice at all! 

This affects thousands of women in Southampton and I’ve been supporting the Solent WASPI - Women Against State Pension Inequality Campaignto get fairer transitional arrangements in place. 

If re-elected on Thursday 8th June I will continue to be a strong voice in Parliament for these women and many more like them.

From nurses having to rely on foodbanks to Junior Doctors quitting because of working condidtions it's clear that the Tories have not been treating our NHS staff fairly.

When doctors, nurses and support staff can't do their jobs to the best of their ability because they are being stretched and pushed to breaking point our NHS suffers. That's why I'm proud to support Labour's manifesto pledge to scrap the NHS pay cap and legislate to ensure safe staffing levels. 

This will ensure both patient and staff safety and provide the working conditions that our NHS workers deserve.

The Tories have failed NHS staff

I spent this morning in Freemantle talking to parents who were concerned about Tory funding cuts to our schools in Southampton.

In Southampton our schools are set to lose £13million by 2020 which could see us with 357 fewer teachers thanks to the Tories catastrophic pupil funding regime. 

If re-elected on Thursday 8th June I will continue as our strong voice for Southampton and fight for our children's education.

I will always fight for our city's schools
