I RECENTLY visited some of the fantastic community organisations we have across the island.

I was joined by Derek Vaughan MEP as we visited groups such as Mentor Môn to take stock of the delivery of projects through public, private and social enterprises.

In Westminster, I raised food labelling and country of origin of produce during Welsh Questions.

It is vital that our labelling systems improve so we can see that the food we buy is local, Welsh produce and so that we can make informed choices about what we eat.

I also met with companies and industry representatives to discuss the potential of Anglesey and north Wales.

As Wales, the UK and others come out of the global crisis we must maximise the potential of our island in a sustainable way whilst creating jobs and prosperity. I will continue to promote Anglesey as a premier destination for businesses.

The lack of Government business means that Parliament has prorogued in anticipation of the Queen’s Speech.

It is disappointing that internal strife within the Coalition Government is not producing policies and the ones that do come out of the Conservative-Liberal Democrat pact are impracticable and hurt vulnerable families such as the Bedroom Tax.

Labour will reverse this spiteful policy if returned to Government.

Back in the constituency, I held advice surgeries in Llangefni, met National Grid on transmission issues, visited local community groups and businesses, attended the Anglesey Eisteddfod and did a few miles on the coastal path.
