This week I showed my support for Trade Unions and the TUC’s campaign to end sexual harassment.

It's #HeartUnions week - a time to appreciate the efforts and achievements of trade unions.

I’m proud to work in partnership with Unions. Thanks to the them, workers have an array of protections, including sick pay, the minimum wage and protection from discrimination. It's for these reasons that I would encourage everyone to join a union.

I am also supporting the TUC’s #ThisIsNotWorking campaign. The TUC has called for an end to workplace sexual harassment making the case that employers, rather than victims, can have a role to play in preventing sexual harassment.

The law needs to change to help prevent harassment occurring in the first place. The current law relies on employees to report instances of sexual harassment after they’ve happened which to me seems flawed.

Four out of five people don’t feel able to report sexual harassment to their employer. The TUC have found that over 50% of women have experienced some form of sexual harassment at work and almost 70% of LGBT+ people have experienced at least one form of sexual harassment at work. This must end.

I’m calling on the Government to end workplace sexual harassment by following the TUC’s recommendations for the upcoming employment bill.

I once again urged the Government to listen to the concerns of businesses about the Post-Brexit economy.

I asked the Chancellor what assessment he has made of the potential effect on the manufacturing sector and the economy more widely, if the UK did not have access to the EU single market. He completely dodged the question.

I speak to local businesses and bodies like the Federation of Small Business all the time, and they are extremely concerned that neither the infrastructure, nor the advice, are in place. They simply cannot be sure they can survive Brexit if we don't have frictionless access to our biggest market closest to us.

As I have said before, the manufacturing industry and unions alike say the current uneccessary plans to move away from current regulation arrangement will spell ruin - costing billions of pounds and countless jobs. We cannot let the Government destroy such a vital part of the local economy.

The Government must support, not (as Johsnon said) 'f' business. I'll continue to push for the interests of Warwick and Leamington.
