My week ahead, 9 - 14 February 2015

Monday 9 February, 4pm – Culture Portfolio meeting
6pm – Labour Group campaigning

Saturday 14 February, 11am – Labour campaigning in East Ipswich
Labour fund raising evening

Not many meetings this week, but plenty of casework to catch up with. I would have hoped to be able to spend more time campaigning as we get closer to May but one consequence of this coalition Government is that more people are approaching me to help sort out issued that are often caused by actions of this callous Government so add that to all the casework generated by a failing Tory County Council and it is less time ‘hard pounding’ and more time on the phone or sending out emails.

Tories closing Ipswich Children’s Centres but still Dan Poulter remains silent and Ben Gummer continues to make excuses whilst living in a land of self-denial. This week we find out that the Tories had not even asked Ipswich Borough Council if the Reg Driver Centre (one of the replacement locations for the Quayside Children’s Centres) was even available for hire and if it was, how much it would cost. Just another example of how badly thought out the plan to close these much used facilities is.

Ben Gummer made a big deal of the fact that many of the parents lived closer to Reg Driver than Quayside, so what is he going to say now that we find the Reg Driver Centre may not be available?
