Ms Gill said: “Growing up, my inspiration to get into politics was my father, the late Daljit Singh Shergill. My dad came to Birmingham in the 1950s, where he worked in the Foundry and as a bus driver before becoming the President of the first Gurdwara in Smethwick.
“Growing up in recession-hit Birmingham in the 1980s, I realised the power of community.
“I saw how my father unionised the ethnic minority workers at his factory, to stop them having their pay packets stolen by other workers.
“I watched him set up the first domestic abuse service of its kind, and establish the first food bank in Smethwick. Our home became a one-stop shop for anyone who needed support.
