On 23 October, Kevan, and his black Labrador Retriever, Biff, took part in the Westminster Dog of the Year competition.
The annual competition is organised jointly by the Kennel Club and Dogs Trust. This year's top dog was Diesel, a German Shepherd belonging to Rob Flello MP.
Kevan said, "Although Biff didn't win the title this year, it was a great event and a good opportunity to raise important animal welfare issues and promote responsible dog ownership. Biff doesn't seem too disappointed by the result, and Diesel was certainly a very worthy winner."
Yesterday Kevan Jones spoke in a Commons debate, brought forward by the Opposition, on the future of the NHS.
Kevan focused his contribution on the crisis in the North East ambulance service.
