Stephen has today published an article on Labour List with his colleague Kate Green MP. Kate is the MP for Stretford and Urmston and Shadow Minister for Disabilities.

The article sets out how a Labour government would start to reform employment support to get more disabled people into work. They write: " Thousands are being denied the chance to work, exacerbating the heightened risk of poverty they face. For Labour, the right to work goes to the heart of what we as a party stand for. Ensuring disabled people who can work are able to do so is for us a matter fundamentally about equality for disabled people, ensuring they have the chance to participate and contribute...A Labour government will make the economy work for working people, giving disabled people the support they need to find a job."
