Ogmore MP: We Must Debunk Cancer Myths To Save Lives

Cervical Cancer Prevention Week is designed to bust the myths and fight the stigma through Jo’s Trust’s #SmearForSmear campaign. Local MP Chris Elmore has thrown his support firmly behind the campaign. Cervical cancer is almost wholly preventable, and yet, because of many of the common myths around the HPV infection that can cause it, many women do not go for their smear tests regularly. Research in November 2018 showed that going for a smear test in the UK had reached a 21-year low. Chris Elmore MP said: “Women are needlessly at risk of cervical cancer because of the low level of smear tests being attended in the UK. There are many misconceptions that are affecting women’s health. Thanks to

“We must do more to protect children online” – Chris Elmore

“Strengthening the Union requires full-throated commitment to upholding the devolution settlement” –

Ogmore MP Chris Elmore has warned UK Government ministers not to run roughshod over the devolution settlement through the Shared Prosperity Fund. The new Welsh Secretary, Simon Hart MP, failed to confirm whether the Welsh Labour Government would have control over the new fund, that is set to replace EU structural funding post-2020. At the first Wales Questions of the decade, Mr Hart was repeatedly asked to clarify details about how the fund will work by MPs. Despite there being only 11 months until the fund is scheduled to come into force, the only assurance Mr Hart was able to give was that it would not “drive a coach and horses” through the current devolution settlement. Chris Elmore MP sa

The Domestic Abuse Bill passed through its second reading in Parliament before the General Election and featured in the Queen’s Speech on 19 December.

“Our devolved administrations deserve genuine consultation” – Chris Elmore MP

Chris Elmore MP has called on the UK Government to finally start working with the Welsh Government to clarify how the Shared Prosperity Fund will work for Wales. Following numerous interventions from the Ogmore MP during the last Parliament, Chris highlighted the uncertainty plaguing the Welsh economy as a result of the UK Government’s intransigence. The Shared Prosperity Fund is set to be used as a vehicle through which the UK Government can allocate regional investment that would otherwise have stemmed from EU funding streams. Concerns have repeatedly been raised about the amount of funding that will be made available to Wales through the fund post-2020. During the passage of the EU Withdr
