WHEN anyone ever asks me what a typical day is, I just have to say I don't have one!
For me it’s part of the appeal of my job, but it’s also part of the difficulty of an MP’s job too.
Last week for instance I was selected to be the first and only MP to appear on the new BBC3 series Free Speech, a new live audience panel debate series out of the Question Time stable and directed at the young.
Issues ranged from the government's work experience scheme to body image, Afghanistan and minimum alcohol pricing.
I was also tasked to do the research on a new apprenticeship scheme for the fashion industry to see if a new scheme for skills attached to the industry could be created, especially as homegrown luxury fashion goods are set to grow by 57% by 2015.
At present there is a whole generation of youngsters interested in fashion but with no coherent skills training to assist them.
When I arrived back in Wirral I held a meeting with a delegation of Chinese Business leaders, including Stella Shiu, chairwoman of Sam Wa International Investment, and Peel Holdings about the International Trade Centre, closely followed by a site visit to the new Pensby primary school and Stanley school.
I love the job I do and the interaction I get to have with school children, youth, civic and business leaders, whilst all the while looking to see how we can achieve what is best for the people of Wirral, young and old.
