The work of an MP centres around dealing with matters that affect people in the constituency. This means attending many local meetings and also face to face discussions with constituents, discussing issues and seeking solutions.
 
 

Then of course, there is the need to represent constituents by attending the Houses of Parliament each week, raising issues for debate directly in the chamber.

This page lists some of the speeches and questions raised by Jon in parliamentary sessions. The paragraphs listed contain the introductory text to the speech. For the full text, plus the context in which the speech was made, follow the link at the end of the paragraph.

Oral Answers to Questions - Cabinet Office: Trade Union Subscriptions (Civil Service)
Jonathan Ashworth: The Paymaster General has reiterated his support for getting rid of check-off, even though the Chief Secretary to the Treasury has written to Departments saying that there could be legal costs associated with that.

Business of the House: Iraq: Coalition Against ISIL
Jonathan Ashworth: My right hon. Friend is making a very good speech.

Oral Answers to Questions - Defence: Gaza
Jonathan Ashworth: Like all Members I condemn the rocket attacks, but like many Members I consider the bombings and aggression that has led to the loss of many innocent children's lives, damage to schools and destruction of homes to be disproportionate-indeed, many of my constituents feel that it amounts to collective punishment.

Bill Presented: Childcare Payments Bill
Jonathan Ashworth: I apologise for the fact that I am going to have to leave to pick up my own children from child care.

Opposition Day - [2nd Allotted Day]: Office for Budget Responsibility (Manifesto Audits)
Jonathan Ashworth: My hon. Friend is speaking with his typical eloquence. Is it not the case that for all the arguments that we have heard about what Mr Chote may or may not have said and all the arguments about timing and what Bills can or cannot be brought before Parliament, Tory Front Benchers do not want the proposal to be implemented because they put Tory party interest ahead of the national interest?
