Latest news


18 August 2017
I am sad to learn of the news of the death of George Zographou, an 18 year old student of St Brendan’s College, after contracting Meningitis. Meningitis has been on the increase recently, particularly for young people and students. I hope people will make themselves aware of the symptoms of Meningitis, and consider vaccination. A vaccine for strains ACWY of the disease is being offered on the NHS to 13 – 18 year olds and new university students, but whether you fit this category or not I encourage you to look at the possibility of getting vaccinated.
I would like to extend a huge congratulations to all A-level pupils in Bristol East who received their results yesterday. Whether you exceeded your expectations, hit your target grades, or didn’t do as well as you would have liked, you should be very proud of all you have achieved. Whatever your plans are for the future – university, an apprenticeship, or a well-deserved break - I wish you all the best with the exciting opportunities that lie ahead.
The Lamplighters are looking for support to gain £10,000 of funding for their brilliant community project
I am supporting the 10:10 Campaign calling for greater electrification of our trains; the Government is being incredibly short-sighted by not deciding not to modernise our rail network. Electric trains are better for our environment as they don't give out the pollution of the current diesel engines. They are also quicker and more reliable, offering a better service to passengers.
Kerry has recently been in contact with Bristol Dementia Services, who have produced a film in 6 languages (Urdu, Punjabi, Cantonese, Somali, Polish and English) to help raise awareness around dementia diagnoses.
Innovative thinking, like the launch of the bio-gas bus, is a necessary step we must take in order to reduce air pollution in Bristol.
Whether it's reading for pleasure or for learning, access to books is important for all of us, and libraries play a crucial part in this. Wick Road Library also functions as a community space where people living in Brislington can come together and socialise, or use the computers if they don't have one at home

The week ahead

Week beginning 24th July

Parliament is now in recess, and will return on Tuesday September 5th. Brexit negotiations will of course continue. The EU Withdrawal Bill - formerly referred to as the Great Repeal Bill - was published shortly before recess and MPs will be spending the summer break scrutinising it in fine detail. Kerry will also be using recess to catch up on local meetings, e.g. with the Police & Crime Commissioner and Chief Constable; with the Council to discuss its budget consultation; and with the Feeding Bristol steering group. Kerry will also be spending some time in the USA with the British-American Parliamentary Group, meeting members of Congress and other lawmakers, with a particular focus on UK-US trade talks and a post-Brexit deal.
