The announcement that Go North East will scale back bus services across the North East is utterly predictable.  When central government fails to provide proper funding for bus services, companies are forced to cut back on vital bus routes because they are unviable to run.  It makes a mockery of levelling up and leaves behind the communities that need public transport the most.

The Tories are not overseeing a cost of living crisis; they are its very cause.  This year, families in the North East and nationwide will fork out an extra ​ten billion pounds on petrol, when compared to this time last year. This is money our families simply do not have.

I wish to express my utter and complete condemnation for Vladimir Putin and his administration as it wages an invasion in Ukraine, killing innocent civilians and wounding many more. I have been working closely with colleagues to ensure that the Government offers the best route to asylum for Ukrainian refugees fleeing their homes as their brave soldiers repel the Russian invaders.

But, closer to home, this week I raised the issue of regional food inequality in Parliament.
