Message from Derek Vaughan MEP


Dear Students & Teachers,


Thank you for visiting my website.  Here you will find information on my activities as the Labour Member of the European Parliament for Wales and the latest updates on Welsh and European issues.


I believe that it is a huge privilege to be able to represent the people of Wales in the European Parliament.  I typically spend Mondays to Thursdays in either Brussels or Strasbourg and then I return to my constituency on Fridays and weekends.


I hope that the resources provided on this website useful and that you are able to learn more about Wales, the European Parliament and how we can all work together to create legislation that benefits the people of Wales.


If you have any questions or concerns, would like to get in touch to find out more about my work or would like me to come and speak to your group or organisation then please do not hesitate to contact my office.


Best Wishes.
