BUSINESS AS USUAL AS VICTORIA PRENTIS MP RETURNS TO WESTMINSTER
After a busy summer recess of campaigning to save maternity services at the Horton General Hospital, Victoria Prentis is now returning to Westminster and getting to grips with her new role as Parliamentary Private Secretary (PPS) to Ministers in the Department for Transport. Issues surrounding the Horton will continue to be a priority, alongside a busy parliamentary schedule, the new PPS role and discussions on Brexit.
Alongside day to day Parliamentary activities, Victoria will soon be travelling to Jordan to visit Syrian refugees affected by the civil war with the charity, Save the Children. Her work fundraising for Syrian refugees also continues in the UK with Victoria’s second ‘Singing for Syrians’ event over the winter months. More details on the Singing for Syrians initiative can be found at http://victoriaprentis.com/2016/07/14/victoria-prentis-mp-continues-singing-for-syrians-initiative/.
Victoria is also continuing her work with local schools, organising a Shakespeare workshop with actors from the Royal Shakespeare Company for primary schools. Her second annual Cherwell Democracy challenge, a debating competition for secondary schools will also take place in the next few months.
Victoria commented: “Following a very eventful summer, I am enjoying being back in Westminster and catching up with fellow MPs. The next few months will be busy but very exciting.
As I get to grips with my new role as PPS to transport ministers, I am organising a number of meetings in North Oxfordshire alongside an important trip to Jordan later this month. I am particularly looking forward to upcoming events with local schools and am thrilled that so many are keen to participate in the Shakespeare workshop and debating challenge.
My work to maintain Horton services will carry on alongside a busy parliamentary schedule, and I will continue to offer support to constituents and Horton staff affected by recent announcements.”
