Campaigning in Lewisham East

In the constituency next door, Lewisham East have selected Janet Daby to fight the parliamentary bye-election to be held on June 14th.

Labour Councillors and supporters at Catford

Damien becomes London’s youngest ever directly elected Mayor, with the highest vote share ever in Lewisham.

Since 2010, the Tory Government has slashed funding for Lewisham Council in half. Labour has stood up to Tory austerity, including leading the fight against Jeremy Hunt’s attempts to close Lewisham A&E.

Every single council seat is also held by Labour. Thank you for your support and trust. 

Thank You

Wow. What a result. I’m so honoured to have been re-elected to represent Lewisham Deptford, my home for the last 17 years. And I’m humbled to have received an increased majority of 34,899 votes.

I want to say thank you to the volunteers, organisers, my team and above all, everyone who voted for me - your voice was heard loud and clear. We are a proud, strong Labour area and we will not be deceived or directed into voting for Tory polices that will only be detrimental to our community.

Estimates reckon the turnout among young people could have been as high as 72%, compared to 43% in 2010 and 44% in 2015. During my two years in Parliament I have tried to focus on issues that affect young people, from youth violence and education funding to reducing the voting age, so to see so many young people engaged is incredible. The future of this country is being heard and represented.

Many young voters backed Labour because they know only the Labour Party will secure their future through investing properly in our education system and our housing, securing extra jobs (including jobs that tackle climate change), fighting to protect our NHS, fighting austerity and creating a transport system that truly delivers for the travelling public.

So now I promise to keep up my end of the bargain by continuing to raise local issues and being your voice in Parliament - a Parliament that I hope won’t be a Tory one for too much longer…

Thank you

Although there is now only a day and a half to go until the polls open, I am still receiving a large number of emails from local people asking my views on various policy issues. I have tried to reply to as many as possible, but unfortunately I will not have time to respond to all of them before Thursday.

If you would like to know my position on an issue, the best place to check is our Labour Party manifesto. You can view the manifesto in full here.

Thank you for your understanding.

I've been receiving emails from lots of people asking for reassurance that if re-elected on June 8th I will continue to oppose the reintroduction of fox hunting, as well as committing to increasing sentences for those convicted of animal cruelty offences.

I am proud that previous Labour governments brought in the Hunting Act (2004) and the Animal Welfare Act (2006) and if I am re-elected I am committed to defending both. We have also pledged in our manifesto to increase the maximum sentence for those convicted of committing animal cruelty.

You can read more about our specific manifesto commitments on animal welfare here (p. 94).

Thank you to everyone who has emailed asking me to sign the Refugee Council's 'Refugees Welcome' pledge. I am happy to confirm that I have added my name.

If I am re-elected on June 8th, I will continue to push for the UK to do more to help refugees. I have previously written to ministers about this issue several times and have raised it in Parliament as well. I was extremely disappointed earlier this year when the Government chose to quietly scrap their commitment to child refugees via a written ministerial statement, and then voted down a watered down version of the Dubs amendment in March.
 
As a Labour Whip I worked hard in attempting to get these amendments through, but unfortunately we lost the second vote by 287-267. The result was bitterly disappointing - we were expecting more Tory rebels to vote with us, but in the end only three Conservative MPs decided to vote for the Dubs amendment.

I can assure you that I will continue to push for the UK to do more to help refugees if I am re-elected next month.
