Along with 51 of my cross-party colleagues, I have written to Greg Clark MP, Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy regarding the Government's forthcoming Clean Growth Plan.

The Clean Growth Plan is an opportunity to set out long-term strategies and detailed policies that will attract increased and affordable private sector investment in the low carbon economy. A strong cross-economy plan, showing how all sectors will play their part, will allow UK businesses to build on their lead in low carbon innovation in areas such as electric vehicles, construction, smart ICT solutions and legal and financial services.

We believe the Clean Growth Plan should also be a strategy to unlock many additional benefits. Clearer air thanks to cleaner power production and vehicles, improved health and reduced NHS costs thanks to warmer, better insulated and efficiently heated homes, and economic renewal by providing new infrastructure opportunities in communities across the country. It will help save future generations from facing the costly burden of climate change and provide a safer, more prosperous future for us all.

I have today written to Cardiff Council's Planning Department to formally object to the recent application for the development of flats on Womanby Street in the City Centre.

I have been contacted by a large number of concerned residents regarding this development.

Womanby Street is recognised for its diverse and popular nightlife and music venues, and I believe a development such as this, if approved, could prove to be detrimental to this scene.

You can view/object to the application on the Council's website by clicking here, or alternatively you can write an objection and send it via post to:

I was pleased to meet this week with The Royal British Legion’s Wales Area Manager Antony Metcalfe to discuss support for the Armed Forces community in Wales.

The Royal British Legion provides welfare assistance thousands of veterans, serving personnel and their families in Wales every year. It is also the national custodian of Remembrance, best known for its emblem the red poppy. I attended the Legion’s event in Parliament to show my support for the charity’s work, and to meet Legion membership, staff and volunteers to discuss issues facing the Armed Forces community in Wales.

Last year in Wales, the Legion provided over £500,000 in grants to support members of the Armed Forces community and engaged with almost 6,500 people directly via its high street Pop in centres and community outreach. The Legion’s own handy van service ‘poppy calls’ also completed 2,350 jobs across Wales, helping people in their own homes to live independently and with the support they require.
