Support for Campaign from New MP

The campaign has started back in earnest after my vacation and it was a pleasure to welcome the newly elected MP for Ogmore, Chris Elmore (Labour), to our offices this morning to discuss the campaign for mandatory regulation of the hair sector.

What a fantastic meeting, Chris was fully supportive of the aims of the campaign and was extremely helpful in suggesting ways of working with Government to amend the 1964 Act from ‘voluntary’ registration to ‘mandatory’.

We are both taking away actions; always a sign of a productive meeting and Chris has offered to speak in any upcoming debates on the issue.

Chris has also expressed an interest in attending the next APPG, should his diary allow, it would be wonderful to see him at the next meeting in October.

I am looking forward to my next two meetings with Dr Dai Lloyd, Plaid Cymru Regional AM for South West Wales next week and Mike Hedges Labour AM for Swansea East early in September.
