You could not have met a nicer bloke, or more dedicated MP than Harry Harpham. He achieved so much in his short time on the green benches and it’s a travesty that he didn’t have longer with us.
It was a pleasure and a privilege to be Harry’s regional whip and I worked with him in the shadow Energy and Climate change team. In his last contribution in the chamber just days ago, he attacked the Prime Minister for job losses at Sheffield Forgemasters. He was determined to fight for those he represented, just as he had always done.
My deepest condolences are with his wife Gill and his children and granddaughter, and we will be working to support them and his staff throughout this difficult time.
Rest in peace Harry, you did us proud.
