And during his first appointment yesterday (January 11), he met with chief social worker Isabelle Trowler to discuss children’s social care at Hackney Council.
Mr Zahawi – who has been MP for Stratford since 2010 – tweeted: “Delighted to get cracking in my new role, meeting children’s social workers at Hackney Council with sabelleTrowler and seeing projects funded by our Innovation Programme.
“I look forward to championing the hard work of this profession.”
