Vital eye-witness reporting by @ramsaysky @SkyNews of the evacuation effort at Kabul airport. “This is the worst day by far… It is boiling hot, people are queuing in their thousands… People at the front are being absolutely crushed. We believe people have died this morning” twitter.com/SkyNews/status…

Chaos at Kabul airport. Even people with visas are often not getting in. New applicants being told they’ll need to wait 5 months. Access more restricted every day. Time is running out. What are you doing about it @POTUS @BorisJohnson? 1/4 twitter.com/SkyNews/status…

Tonight on NN a report on skyrocketing service charges affecting leaseholders. At its heart is the leasehold/freehold divide, an archaic remnant of English law, a system that as well as driving service charge increases, is making the wider building safety crisis even worse. twitter.com/bbcnewsnight/s…

I'm saddened by the death of Austin Mitchell who served Great Grimsby with remarkable commitment for 38 years - even changing his surname to 'Haddock' to promote local industry. His sense of humour was matched by his deep Labour values. My thoughts are with his wife and children.

Parliament returns today to discuss the crisis in Afghanistan.
Raab tells #r4today he plans to increase aid to Afghanistan "probably by 10%" Context: Gov recently cut Afghanistan aid by 78% "Bilateral aid from the UK to Afghanistan... is estimated at £37.5m for 2021/22, down from £167.5m last year" - @HugoGye inews.co.uk/news/politics/…

Abdullah al Howaiti couldn't have committed the crime. Yet, he was forced to 'confess' under torture when he was only 14. He's now facing execution. The FCDO needs to publicly call for his death sentence to be quashed - and for a new, fair trial.👇�buff.ly/3lXXSdFhd

Heartfelt thanks to all the U.K. Government staff, and the Ambassador, who delayed leaving Afghanistan so they could assist those trying to reach safety. They remind us what courage and dedication look like.

The Government needs to explain why Pakistan remains on the travel red list, while India, Bahrain, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates are being moved to the amber list. I have tabled a series of parliamentary questions to Grant Shapps, the Transport Secretary.
On the 2nd anniversary of lockdown in Indian-administered Kashmir, human rights matter. As Chair of @labourkashmir I call on the international community to redouble efforts to raise awareness of #Kashmir & to ensure we bring all sides together to determine a peaceful resolution.

Adding some context. Please contact your MPs and ask them to support amendments to the #BuildingSafetyBill & ensure leaseholders don't pay to fix someone else's mess. Feel free to use my bill as a starting point. #EndOurCladdingScandal #BuildingSafetyCrisis (*millions of people)

It’s Labour’s view that leaseholders shouldn’t pay for fire safety works that aren’t their fault. I won’t rest until every building is sorted. Watch the full Political Slot film on building safety here. #EndOurCladdingScandal #MorethanCladding channel4.com/programmes/the…
