Daniel Zeichner, MP for Cambridge, criticised the Government's Industrial Strategy in the House of Commons during last night's Budget debate. 

He told the House that although Cambridge is successful, and is mentioned prolifically in the Industrial Strategy document, there is no guarantee that this will continue after Brexit if safeguards are not put in place to support those working in the city, and in Life Sciences around the country. 

Government Industrial Strategy is 'a glossy technicolour while most people's lives are being lived in gritty black and white'

Daniel Zeichner, MP for Cambridge, has joined 94 MPs in signing a letter that calls on the Secretary of Stage for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, Michael Gove, to reconsider the decision to exclude animal sentience from the EU Withdrawal Bill. 

Animal sentience is protected under Article 13 of the Treaty of Lisbon and states that Member States 'must pay full regard to the welfare requirements of animals,' however this has been left out of the current Bill being debated in Parliament.

Daniel Zeichner, MP for Cambridge has pledged his support for campaign group SolidariTee ahead of this week's 'Day of SolidariTee' campaign, when people up and down the country will wear a custom-made T-shirt ins a bid to raise awareness and money for the work of Advocates Abroad; an NGO that provides legal aid and representation to refugess in Greece and Turkey. 

SolidiTee is a national fundraising and campaign group founded by Cambridge University students, Tiara Ataii. The campaign group sell T-shirts at £10 each, which will fund one-night accommodation for a human rights lawyer in Greece. Mr Zeichner met with Tiara, the President and founder of SolidaiTee, to hear about the progress of the campaign and to take a photo with the campaign T-Shirt. 

Daniel said, "it is a real pleasure to be supporting SolidariTee in their quest to help Advocates Abroad provide what is really a basic human right - the right to legal representation.

Refugees already go through the most unbelievable trials and tribulations in order to flee harrowing situations and not having access to legal support in a foreign country can be the difference between being granted asylum and being returned to the country you are trying to escape. 

I applaud the work of Tiara and others at SolidariTee for galvanising this campaign that seeks to help some of the world's most vulnerable."

Philip Hammond's budget, which spends more on preparations for Britain leaving the European Union than on the NHS, shows that the Government has the wrong priorities for Britain says Cambridge MP Daniel Zeichner. 

The budget also failed to provide additional funding for schools or for funding pay in public services, which will leave many Cambridge families facing a further fall in their living standards. 

Daniel says, "instead of finding £3 billion to help build extra customs posts, when we should be trying to stay in the customs union, the Chancelllor should have been focused on helping people who have seen their wages failing to keep up with increased prices in the shops, and young people who face ever-rising rent costs like they are in Cambridge. The Chancellor claimed that this was the Government's vision for Britain, but these are the wrong priorities and it will leave everyone poorer in future."
