Election Update: 14th June 2024

Labour has unveiled its manifesto for change. 


After 14 years of failure with the Conservatives, our manifesto is a plan to kickstart economic growth and bring about a decade of national renewal. 


I’m excited by what this means for south Bristol, with plans to tackle many of the issues that residents regularly raise with me. 


Clear action on the housing crisis, delivering 1.5 million new homes across the country in the biggest increase in affordable and social housing in a generation. 


Investment and reform in the NHS, getting people off waiting lists and treated faster.


Improvements in post-16 opportunities, with high quality apprenticeships, specialist technical colleges, and a new national jobs and careers service focused on supporting people into work. 


A proper system of childcare for working parents, with more nursery places and free breakfast clubs in every primary school. 


The enforcement of the socioeconomic duty in the Equality Act, requiring public bodies to address the inequalities that result from differences in occupation, education, place of residence or social class. 


The overhaul of the bus and rail networks, to ensure these services deliver for the people they serve. 


And a Green Prosperity Plan to invest in the industries of the future, creating 77,000 more jobs in the South West and building a more sustainable Britain. 


These are just some of the transformative policies that Labour will deliver in government. It’s the change people in south Bristol and across the country need.
