  Welcome

I have represented Knowsley since 1986 - the constituency has gone through a number of changes over the years, but throughout that time I have always fought for local people and to protect vital public services.

My priorities are to protect and create jobs through a strong economy, education and training for all, a worldclass NHS, fair immigration policies, safe communities, a fair deal for older people and clear action to tackle climate change.

Please get in touch to let me know your concerns.



George Howarth
Labour MP for Knowsley

Brexit
29 August 2019
The events of the last twenty-four hours are deeply disturbing. First, in seeking to bypass Parliament, Boris Johnson is acting in a profoundly undemocratic way. Secondly, there is no constitutional precedent for such action. The last occasion on which anything remotely similar occurred was on 20 April 1653 when Oliver Cromwell forcibly dissolved parliament using armed forces support and subsequently proclaimed himself Lord Protector. I will not support any action designed to deliver a no-deal Brexit or, for that matter, any deal that does not have parliamentary approval. To do so would be to accept that the government effectively has a free hand to do whatever it wants, which is why I think it is wholly undemocratic. Even though the Queen has agreed to the prorogation – which automatically occurs when a new session begins with a Queen’s speech, although usually this is just a few days – there are still potential ways in which parliament can assert its rights and I will support any such measures.
