Zero hour contracts are a real concern for people in Dover and Deal. Today I spoke at length about this in the House.
My constituents in Dover and Deal are also deeply concerned about zero-hours contracts and that there should be fairness in the workplace... it is important that we understand how many of these contracts there are? The Office for National Statistics says that the number has not changed much over the past 10 years, whereas Unite gives a figure of 5 million and the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development has another figure. Is it not really important that we nail down exactly how many of these sorts of cases there are?
Please see here for my speech in full.
It has been an honour and privilege to serve as Member of Parliament for Dover & Deal. I hope to be re-elected to serve our community for another term.
