Welcome to my website

I have been the Labour Member of Parliament for the area since 1992. I live in the area and have done so since 1993. I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who voted to re-elect me as the MP for Greenwich and Woolwich. To see the results, click here.

This website contains information on how residents of Greenwich and Woolwich can contact me, news about local campaigns I am running and supporting, and also information on my activities in Parliament and in the constituency.

As well as holding regular meetings with a host of schools, public services and community groups in the area, I hold six surgeries every month in five locations across the constituency.

If you need my assistance, please feel free to contact my office and I will do what I can to help.
