Making more of work experience
I AM writing to ask for your readers help on a constituency project – especially if they have children or young relatives who are over 16.
I want young people in the area to have the best possible preparation for the world of work. That should include the opportunity to access high quality work experience placements and access to good career advice.
I am not sure that we are where we need to be in terms of equal opportunity. To test that instinct, I am conducting a survey of young people in the area to get their view on what is available to them. If the picture that emerges is not good enough, I want to do something about it.
It is a very simple online survey, and I would be grateful for any help that residents can give me in bringing it to the attention of local young people who are over 16.

Now Heathrow is just another low wage foreign company expecting British taxpayers to subsidise low wages, and Hillingdon residents to pick up their rubbish. effect on May 26 this year.
This is in regard to fly-grazing in England. Under the new legislation authorities can take action after four days rather than the previous two week minimum.
If an owner does not come forward the landowners and local authorities can rehome the horse to charities instead of selling them at public auction.
