Coalfield areas are top of the agenda in Westminster today!
I met with Jeremy Wright, Culture Secretary, to talk about the pot of funding for Miners Welfares, which I secured in November's Budget. It's going to be administered by Sport England, so I look forward to discussing the details with them soon.
I'm also attending the All Party Parliamentary Group for Coalfields and meeting with the Coalfield Regeneration Trust, whilst former miners are here in Westminster delivering a petition about the Mineworkers' Pension Scheme to Number 10. Really glad to be able to focus on local issues and make them a top priority down in Westminster!
