Katy was this week joined on the campaign trail by Tom Watson, MP for West Bromwich East.

A senior figure in the UK Labour party, Watson has often spoken out about corruption and dodgy practices at Westminster.

Watson said: “Katy has a radical record of standing up to anyone to secure the interests of people in her constituency and across the country."

"From exposing tax avoiders at the top of society, to fighting the Coalition’s welfare cuts that have made life a misery for many vulnerable people, Katy represents a tradition in Labour that is more important than ever.

“We need people like Katy in Parliament and I hope voters back Katy regardless of their view of the Labour leadership.”

Katy said: “I was delighted to be joined by Tom Watson, and I hope people in North Ayrshire will give me their support so I can continue to stand with him and others in Parliament to fight for a radical Labour agenda to achieve social justice.”

Tom was visiting North Ayrshire ahead of a visit from Len McClusky, General Secretary of the UK's largest union Unite, on Thursday 23rd. Katy has secured the support of a large number of trade unions including Unite, Unison and GMB who are affiliated to the Labour Party, as well as unions that are not affiliated to the Labour party, such as the Yes-supporting rail-workers' union, RMT, and the Fire Brigade Union.

Katy is ‘the kind of radical we need’ says Tom Watson on campaign visit

Katy was this week joined on the campaign trail by Tom Watson, MP for West Bromwich East.

Katy has signed Ardrossan resident Marjorie Falconer’s petition to protect Women’s Aid services.

Katy has previously written to North Ayrshire Council expressing concerns about the tender process being run by the council, and the reduction in budget.

 

Katy Clark said “It is vital that we protect our services for vulnerable women. North Ayrshire women’s aid is a woman-led services set up by women concerned about violence against women. The essential frontline work that it does is too important to be cut back or put at risk by a tendering process. When the previous Administration were in power in Scotland, Women’s Aid budgets were ring-fenced; it was decided that they should be because it was recognised that when times are difficult, services of that kind are the first to go. Services that are there for the most vulnerable do not have big lobbying groups providing them with protection and so they will be the ones to go when times are tough. However, the decision was then taken in Scotland not to ring-fence budgets for such services, and we are now seeing the consequences. I have signed Ms. Falconer’s petition and would like to offer my support to all those locally who are fighting to protect these services.”
