Welcoming the Shadow Justice Secretary to Oldham

I was delighted to welcome Shadow Justice Secretary, Sadiq Khan MP, to Oldham East and Saddleworth recently for a series of meetings and a dinner with local people and for him to see for himself the passion of local people who are keen to work to improve their communities.

Sadiq and I met with Oldham based lawyers about access to the Criminal Justice System and Government cuts to legal aid, then with the Chief Operating Officer of the Rugby Football League to discuss increasing interest in both participating and watching Rugby League. Sadiq rounded off his visit by attending a dinner at Oldham’s Pakistani Community Centre, where he and I were joined by local Councillors and activists, and Sadiq made a rousing speech.
