After Carolyn Harris MP's moving campaign, I'm proud to see Carwyn Jones and Welsh Labour doing the right thing and scrapping child burial fees.

This is another example of the difference Labour in power makes: prioritising communities and those in need.

On #RedNoseDay, it has been great to meet staff at Missing Link Housing in Bristol.

This important charity supports young people aged 16-25 who are the victims of domestic and sexual violence - and rely on Comic Relief funds.

Thank you to everyone who is doing their bit to raise money for Comic Relief today.

Today, we are united by our humanity and by our democratic values and by that human impulse for solidarity, to stand together in times of darkness and adversity.

I would like to thank our police, security and emergency services, who responded so bravely to the shocking attack in Westminster today. Our thoughts are with the victims, their families and friends.

Theresa May and her government need to be honest - they are betraying a generation of young people by cutting the funding for every child.

The people of Britain are fed up with being held back by an elite that wants more than any individual could possibly need.

Enough is enough.

We will not be divided. In place of division, we must all come together to celebrate our diverse communities and our shared heritage.

Britain cannot be a haven for the criminals of the world who are looking to hide their money.

But it appears that some big banks haven’t learnt the lessons of the past, and are clearly not doing enough to clamp down on financial crime and money laundering.

If the Tories will not act to clamp down on such acts, then the next Labour government will make them a thing of the past.

I was very sad to hear of the death of Martin McGuinness this morning, and I would like to send my thoughts and condolences to his wife Bernie and his family. I first met Martin in the 1980s, and remember discussing politics and trout fishing with him.

Martin McGuinness played an immeasurable role in bringing about peace in Ireland, after years as a key protagonist in the tragedy of the...

The Prime Minister has announced her government will trigger Article 50 on the 29 March.

This obviously marks a historic and uncertain step for our country.

Labour respects the result of the referendum and accepts that Britain will be leaving the European Union

But the manner in which we leave is still up for negotiation.

We can’t allow the Tories to use Brexit as an excuse to turn Britain...

Sometimes spirits in the Labour Party can run high. Today has been one of those days. That's because we are a passionate party - and so I want to send a message to all party members.

The referendum delivered a clear result to leave the European Union and the government has a mandate to trigger Article 50, which will begin that process.

Labour respects the will of the people, but the government has failed to build a consensus about what form Brexit should take. It has failed to provide clarity about its intentions and it has been reckless about the costs of leaving...

After huge pressure from Labour, today's major climb-down over the rise in National Insurance Contributions for the self-employed shows the government is in crisis. It took just seven days for the Chancellor's first budget to unravel.

Last week's budget was one of broken promises. The Conservatives thought they could get away with hitting 2.5 million low and middle earners with a tax rise...

Yesterday morning, on the Today programme, I argued for a better deal for self-employed people. It’s not fair that the self-employed don’t have access to sick pay, maternity or paternity leave or employment rights, especially now the Conservatives are raising their taxes.

The self-employed deserve the same rights as the employed.
There are EU citizens who work in our public services and our NHS, who are married to British citizens and have children here – and it’s time we gave them security and peace of mind.

On the Today programme this morning, I explained why Labour is putting rights and jobs at the centre of our proposals for the Brexit deal.
Join me tonight in Parliament Square and help defend the rights of EU citizens who have made a life here. Event here: [ Link ]

Labour has consistently demanded that the rights of UK citizens living in the EU and EU citizens living in the UK be protected. That position is now shared by the Lords, the Brexit Committee, organisations representing Britons resident overseas and by...

This is a rigged economy that neither the Conservatives nor the SNP want to change. This is unjust, unfair and immoral. And, we know people die as a result.

The Conservatives have gone far too far. Liverpool - and Britain - won't take any more of this.

Enough is enough. We can, and we must, do things differently.
