Many people have been in touch about unfair fines because of technical issues with Wandsworth Council's new parking system.
Recent cases show residents were notified that they had paid for their permit, but were fined for not renewing. I was glad to secure refunds.
Contact me if you've had problems.
With Parliament minutes away from voting down the Withdrawal Agreement, I nipped over to Parliament Square to speak to the supporters of People's Vote.
It is vital that this decision goes back to the people!

I have worked with Med Global Org and have seen first hand the fantastic work they do. This is my letter to Jeremy Hunt requesting this situation to be resolved.

Healthy eating and the education around keeping fit and healthy starts young. But the same time, 35,000 hours of PE are being cut from schools each year, and an increasing number of our leisure facilities are being closed.
Today I spoke out against the Tory cuts depriving kids of sport in The Mirror.
As an A&E doctor, I see first-hand the strain that is placed on staff, patients and their families as waiting times soar.
On New Year’s Day I was back in A&E and was once again amazed by the dedication and commitment of our much valued doctors, nurses and support staff.
Tonight, even the wet and windy weather couldn't dampen our Christmas spirits.
I had the pleasure of spending time with the people of Furzedown at the annual market. There were mince pies, carols, and lots of great independent, local stallholders.
I of course took the opportunity to pick up some great last minute gifts!
Since 2016, Government cuts have led to:
100 swimming pools drained; 12 athletics tracks closed; 350 sports halls shut; and 800 grass pitches sold off.
The Olympic Legacy is in tatters, but the Sports Minister can’t tell me how many sports facilities will open in 2019. Watch the video here: https://twitter.com/DrRosena/status/1073170479823904769
Over 2,700 Tooting people completed an online poll to give their views on Brexit. The survey was taken by people from across Balham, Earlsfield, Furzedown and Tooting to ensure that there was a reasonable spread of respondents across Tooting.
They were also asked which Brexit option they preferred: the Government's Brexit Deal, a Labour Brexit deal, No Deal, or a public vote.
I also wanted to understand how local people felt about Brexit as a whole - so I asked if they felt living standards would decline or improve after Brexit. As a local A&E doctor, I was keen to know how Tooting residents felt about the NHS, so people were also asked if they believed the NHS would get better or worse after Brexit.
The results were clear: only 7% supported the Government’s Deal, and just 6% support a No Deal Brexit. Among this group, the number of people who are optimistic about Brexit is even smaller. Of the 7% who support the Government’s deal, less than one fifth believe our NHS will improve after Brexit (18%). Of the 6% who support a No Deal Brexit, almost two thirds (59%) believe the next generation will be worse off as a result of it.
The vast majority of local people who completed the survey are deeply concerned about what Brexit will bring: 97.5% believe our NHS will be worse off after Brexit and 96.9% believe living standards will drop as a result of Brexit.
The wishes of Tooting, therefore, are unequivocal: 90.1% want a public vote.
