Speech delivered in The House Of Commons on 10/05/18
Thank you Chair for the opportunity to speak today.
Before I start I must make a declaration of interest – today I speak to you not just as an MP serving the residents of Barnsley Central but also in my role as the new Mayor of the Sheffield City Region.
Last week 260,000 residents across South Yorkshire voted in the election. I remain honoured and humbled that after a hard-fought campaign I was elected to serve. It is a responsibility I take very seriously.
