Where I stand on...

Every day, I receive dozens of campaign emails from constituents concerned about a huge variety of national issues. 

While individual constituency enquiries will be answered by email or letter, due to the vast increase in the volume of campaign emails now being generated, I can no longer guarantee replying to these individually and am therefore posting my responses on this section of my website.

Please note this page is being constantly updated.

Climate change

As Conservatives, we have always cared deeply about our environment. It was under our party that the United Kingdom became one of the first countries to call for global action on climate change and, since then, we have taken a leading role on the world stage.

NHS and future trade deals

The National Health Service is not for sale. It never has been and never will be. We will never allow any trade agreement to change this fundamental fact.

Cycling and walking

Encouraging cycling and walking is key to improving public health and improving air quality in our towns and cities.

School funding

Recently, our schools have not received the attention they deserve, and we should not accept the idea that there can be winners or losers when it comes to our children’s futures.

Local housing allowance

Reforms to Housing Benefit are a central part of the Government's plan to create a welfare system that supports the most vulnerable and is fair to taxpayers.
 

Brexit

I have always backed Brexit, I have always voted in Parliament to leave and never voted to delay or stop Britain’s exit from the European Union. Unlike the opposition parties in Parliament, I have no intention of stopping or reversing the United Kingdom's exit from the European Union.

Britain's woodlands

Our woods and forests are an invaluable national asset and I am proud of the action that has been taken in recent years to preserve and extend British woodland.
 

Trophy hunting

I truly believe that, as sentient beings who can experience fear and pain, all animals should be treated with thought and care.

Guide Dogs UK

I want our streets to be as accessible as possible for people with visual impairments, and I am pleased that the Government shares this ambition.

Homelessness

I firmly believe that just one person without a roof over their head is one too many, and it is vitally important that the most vulnerable people in society, including homeless people and rough sleepers, are helped to get their lives back on track.

Alcohol duty

As announced at the 2018 Autumn Budget, duties on beer, cider, and spirits have again been frozen.
