Kerry pushes council to remove caravans, clean up site, and secure it - after bringing Mayor Marvin Rees to see the problems caused first-hand.
This morning, during her statement on the Grenfell Tower fire, I asked Theresa May whether the Government will fund any fire safety works which Bristol City Council deem essential and, if they will, when they will pay for it.
After botching the general election she called, Theresa May has – thankfully – put most of her manifesto through the shredder, leaving very little for the Queen to read out today. Thanks to pressure from Labour, plans to bring back fox hunting, open more grammar schools, scrap winter fuel allowance and the triple-lock, most likely along with the dementia tax, have been shelved.
The UK voted to leave the EU, not the single market. I have signed a letter, along with more than 50 Labour MPs, MEPs and Peers, arguing that we should remain in the single market to protect jobs, trade, and rights, while, as we make clear, being free to impose restrictions on free movement.
After agreeing with the EU's timetable for talks, the Brexit Secretary David Davis must now settle the UK's divorce bill before moving onto other issues, like citizens' rights and keeping his promise for the UK to have the 'exact same benefits' after Brexit as we do now.
Since the tragic fire at Grenfell Tower in London, and with dozens of people either dead or missing, many of you have been getting in touch, understandably concerned about fire regulations. This morning, I was with firefighters, councillors and Marvin Rees, Mayor of Bristol at Butler House – one of the four high-rise blocks in Bristol East – to reassure residents. All 59 council-owned blocks in the city will be visited over the next few weeks.
Kerry responds to the horrific attack near a mosque in London, and calls for continued vigilance and unity.

Appreciate there are other concerns about a DUP deal and have raised these by letter too.

The week ahead

Week beginning 26th June

Parliament continues to debate the Queen's Speech this week, with voting on taking place at the end of the day on Wednesday and Thursday. Kerry has added her name to two amendments, one on the environment and the other expressing concern about any possible deal with the DUP.

The membership of select committees will not be decided for some time yet, so none of the committees are functioning, although elections for the Committee chairs and for three Deputy Speakers will take place soon. (The Speaker was re-elected unopposed last week). The Private Members' Bills ballot takes place this week, with 20 MPs being chosen for prime Friday sitting slots to present their backbench bills.

On Monday there is to be a statement by the Prime Minister on the EU Council, and she will be taking the first Prime Minister's Questions of the new parliament on Wednesday.  We also have BEIS, Northern Ireland and DCMS questions this week.

Kerry will be attending meetings this week on Brexit, Somaliland and the UN Global Goals, as well as the launch of a new Trussell Trust report on food banks and a Unicef reception.
