Parliament Parliament
Hello,

Welcome to my newsletter for Poplar and Limehouse, the best way to keep up to date on some of the things I do as a Member of Parliament. This update is only a few snapshots; it cannot cover the regular surgeries, ongoing case work, research and many enquiries we receive every day.

If you are a constituent and would like to get in touch, please feel free to send me an email: jim.fitzpatrick.mp@parliament.uk along with your name and address.

Best wishes,

Jim

Prorogation
The Government suffered an epic defeat, public humiliation and Royal embarrassment when the Supreme Court verdict on the 'lawfulness' of prorogation was announced.  The PM compounded this gross error of judgement by showing no humility or contrition.  The attempt to out-manoeuvre parliament to avoid 3 days of scrutiny was an indictment of their lack of respect for and understanding of the Commons and the Law.
City of London School
It was a pleasure to discuss politics on Tuesday with pupils from the City of London School.
Trinity Buoy Wharf
On Wednesday I briefly joined the celebrations for Trinity Buoy Wharf's 21st anniversary and the 2019 Drawing Prize Awards.
St Paul's Way Foundation School 
Yesterday I joined the celebrations to mark the completion of St Paul's Way School Trust's new Expansion Project - brilliant new facilities for the community.
Gensler's New Home
Yesterday I welcomed the global design firm Gensler to their new home at Moretown in Wapping.
Tower Hamlets Police
Thank you to Officers Stanley and Chang for letting me join them for a 'ride along' last week as they carried out their duties in Tower Hamlets.
Schools visit Parliament
It is always a pleasure to welcome schools to Parliament and on Monday I met pupils from Jamiatul Ummah School in the Education Centre.
City Lit 
Last week I attended an event at City Lit where the Mayor of London announced his new Skills for Londoners fund - promoting skills and employment in the capital.

This week in Parliament...

Wednesday
Parliament resumed.  The Speaker gave a statement, followed by urgent questions on Prorogation and Hacker House, and statements on Thomas Cook, Brexit Readiness, Iran and a Prime Minister's Update.

Thursday
There were urgent questions the 'Benn Bill', Hong Kong, illegal arms sales to Saudi Arabia and the language of the Prime Minister, followed by a General Debate on democracy.
