Following the magnitude of surveys, letters, phone calls and emails that the MP’s office has received regarding the plans to build a prison on the Beam Park site between Dagenham and Rainham, Jon Cruddas MP is to hold another public consultation meeting.

It’s GCSE results day for pupils across the constituency. Today students will receive eagerly awaited envelopes containing their hard earned grades – schools will be opening for the morning to allow students to collect their results.

(1st = highest rate of unemployment, 650th = lowest rate of unemployment.)
