Nina Gill Mep/Jacqui Smith Home Secretary MP 29th January 2009

Welcome to the first Annual Asian Governmental Dinner. Nina gill is the First Asian Women Member of  the European Parliament as a MEP she has had to fight to give a voice to those that cant make theirs heard, making sure that she represents all the different voices and communities that make up this dynamic region. She has been championing many causes protecting consumers from rip-off airfares and moblie roaming charges, timeshares scams and dangerous foods additives. Also spearheading legislation that will allocate more than 600 million to improve the lives and home of  older people.

The European elections on June 4th 2009 will be run on proportional representation system. This democratic system makes sure the percentage of votes a party gets is matched with the number of seats they receive, so every vote counts.

The Quest of the night was The Rt Hon Jacqui Smith MP and Home Secretary.  Since becoming an MP Jacqui has served on the treasury select committee and was promoted to government in 1999.  As one of the youngest ministers, she served for two years as parliamentary under secretary of state at the Department for Education.

After successfully defending her seat in 2001 she was promoted to minister of state for health with responsibility for social services. Since then she has been promoted again to be minister of state at the Department for Trade and Industry, and deputy minister for women.

After the 2005 general election she became minister of state for schools. In May 2006 she joined the cabinet as chief whip. She became the first female Home Secretary in June 2007.

A  few word on the night  from Jacqui ” I value the contribution that the Asian community makes to the robust character of our country and to our region. I recognise that we need to use all our talents to make our economy as strong as possible. That our diversity is one of our enduring strenghs and that people who come to our shores to work bring talents and ideas.

In the forthcoming campaign we will be fighting on all fronts to keep Labour values represented in Europe. We will of course be campaigning against the do nothing Tories and the irrelevant and marginal Liberal Democrats and be standing up against extremists like the BNP. We must be relentless in challenging their warp view on immigration and on diversity.

Tonights events is an opportunity to work with different communities for the west midlands. I hope that we all have an enjoyable night too!”
