Update from Joy Morrissey MP

Over the summer we have seen one of the most difficult and challenging evacuation operation in modern times. You will all have seen coverage of the Kabul airlift in recent weeks and some of the very sad and worrying stories that have accompanied it. As the Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Foreign, Common and Development Office I have spent a great deal of the summer trying to help my fellow MPs get information about their constituents to the FCDO, the Home Office and the Ministry of Defence.

The scale of the need has been huge, with over 200,000 emails coming in during the course of Operation Pitting. Around 30,000 of those came from MPs and a great many came across my desk as I sought to make sure my colleagues were in contact with the appropriate department to help them. It has certainly been an incredibly busy period and I am so proud of the efforts of all involved.

Between 15 and 29 August, the UK evacuated over 15,000 people from Afghanistan. This included more than 8,000 British nationals, close to 5,000 Afghans who loyally served the United Kingdom, along with their dependants, and about 500 special cases of particularly vulnerable Afghans, including Chevening scholars, journalists, human rights defenders, campaigners for women’s rights and judges. Work continues at the FCDO to open up new routes for those still seeking to leave Afghanistan.

It was a privilege taking part in the Armed Forces Parliamentary Scheme introductory session at the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom. I will be spending my time on the course with the RAF and so was keen to get involved at the shared facility. I am very much looking forward to getting to grips with the way that we defend our nation and understand the developing threats that the UK faces in a fast changing world.

The AFPS provides an incredible opportunity to gain exposure to, and experience of, life in the Armed Forces. It has already given me a much deeper understanding of the impressive training & courage of our Armed Forces personnel. It is truly inspiring to see how much they sacrifice to keep us all safe and free.

This year I have been able to buy a home in the constituency. The little time I had left over the busy summer was spent in various attempts at DIY and gardening projects. I am so pleased to have been able to move, which has been long frustrated by the effects of the pandemic. I took very seriously the commitment I made in the general election campaign to buy a home in the constituency, and I have been trying to do so since early 2020.

The events of the last 18 months have made many things more challenging than usual but I am looking forward to using my new base of operations to get out and about in the constituency as much as possible in the coming weeks and months.

Finally, I am delighted to have been appointed the Parliamentary Private Secretary to the Secretary of State for Justice. Dominic Raab was very kind to ask me to follow him to the Ministry of Justice and act as his PPS. I am very much looking forward to working with our new Deputy Prime Minister in this new Department!
