Politics & Pizza hosts Ruth Jones MP.
October 17, 2022

This month (October) Ruth Jones, Member of Parliament for Newport West joined our young people at the Coffiology Workshop for the monthly Politics & Pizza meeting. Born and bred on the Gaer in Newport, Ruth attended Duffryn Comprehensive School (Now John Frost School) before training to be a physiotherapist. She lives in Allt-yr-yn with her husband and is a governor at Glasllwch Primary, where her children attended school. She spent over 30 years in the National Health Service, working at Nevill Hall Hospital, Panteg Stroke Unit and Serennu Children’s Centre in Newport. She previously worked for the Chartered Society of Physiotherapy (CSP). Ruth was first elected as the MP for Newport West on the 4th April 2019.

It was very engaged meeting with plenty of interesting questions. The group has continuously shown a concern for environmental issues so there were plenty of questions concerning Ruth’s parliamentary work as Shadow Minister for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs and plenty of interest in her work on the Animal Welfare committee. Along with the Environment and Animal welfare other questions related to NHS funding, The cost of living crisis and bad language in the House of Commons.

Next month the group will be hosting Councillor Jane Mudd, leader of Newport City Council.
