In December 2021 I was appointed Shadow Minister for Asia and the Pacific. From April 2020 – December 2021, I was the Shadow Minister for Europe & the Americas. In both these roles as part of Labour’s Front Bench Foreign Affairs team I have been working tirelessly with my colleagues to hold this Government to account for their foreign policy, and to provide a robust defence of the values and norms which Labour holds dear.
We live in extremely uncertain and unpredictable times with groups and nations intent on harming our democracy and our way of life active both here and abroad. I will work with my colleagues on standing up for our democracy, and we will support the Government when it is in the national interest, but we have been clear we are not afraid to put them under pressure to take our national security and the values of humanitarianism and multilateralism seriously.
