MP Nadia Whittome to host online panel with students in Mapperley to hear covid-19 concerns


Nottingham East MP Nadia Whittome is to host an online panel to hear how students are coping amid the covid-19 crisis.

The panel takes place tomorrow (May 20) and will include representatives from the Students Union and student activists.

Nadia Whittome said: “My office has been contacted by a large number of students who have been adversely affected by this pandemic.

“Many students work in the gig economy or rely on zero hours contracts because loans do not cover living costs. Their incomes have been greatly reduced and many report being unable to continue paying rent on their empty properties.

“I have organised this event to give my student constituents an opportunity to ask questions, raise concerns, and tell me how COVID-19 has impacted them”.

Tickets for the free event are available here:
