Stephanie Appointed as Opposition Whip

As reported in the Barnsley Gazette and the Barnsley News and Sport on 19th January, Stephanie has been appointed as an Opposition Whip.

The role entails helping with the organisation of Parliamentary and legislative business for the Labour Opposition.

Stephanie expects the role to keep her at the forefront of upcoming legislation and its impact on Barnsley East. The role also leaves her free to continue speaking and taking action on local issues in the Commons.

She said:

“I’m honoured to have been asked to serve on the Opposition front bench, and I’m determined to use the role to hold this Tory Government to account and stop yet more damaging policies being imposed on people in Barnsley.

“This role is a great opportunity to work even closer to the forefront of Parliamentary business. At a time when the Government has no majority, the Commons is more powerful than ever and this is a chance to make a real impact on the decisions that affect this community and the whole country.”
