Queen’s speech ‘threadbare’

Voting down the ‘threadbare’ Queen’s Speech

Theresa May’s proposed legislative plan is threadbare. There is hardly a mention of our public services or indeed hard working staff.

Last night Labour’s amendment to remove the public pay cap so that our hard working nurses, police officers etc could have a pay rise was blocked by the Conservatives and the DUP. Theresa May had the chance to do the right thing and failed!

It is for these reasons and others that I, along with my Labour colleagues, will be voting against the Queen’s Speech today.

Carer friendly communities

Supporting Carer Friendly Communities

Today I attended an event to promote Carers week and pledged to help build Carer Friendly Communities. Carers often feel overlooked, and yet they perform a vital role. As your MP I want to make sure that carers receive the support and recognition they deserve. If you are a carer and want to share your story, please email me at – I would be very happy to hear from you.



says Mohammad Yasin MP, Member of Parliament for Bedford and Kempston

“I am both proud and humbled to have been elected as Member of Parliament for Bedford & Kempston.

I would like to thank everyone who voted for me and to express my appreciation for the seven years Richard Fuller served as MP. I wish him well for the future.

It is exciting to have this opportunity to serve the whole community as your MP and I made an immediate start by getting in contact with key people in Bedford and Kempston. At the same time I settled into Parliament and gave my maiden speech.

My top priority is to do all I can to ensure that Bedford Hospital retains all the services we need. Obviously, I will be tackling many other important issues too.

As with all new MPs, I am in the process of setting up my local and parliamentary offices and already receive a large number of emails, letters and phone calls every day.

I hold regular surgeries to see constituents, and attend numerous local events where I meet a wide range of interesting local people.
