Reducing The Cost of Living

Keeping prices low is incredibly important, though more people are in employment and education than ever before, cost of living is still a key issue for many of my constituents.

I will campaign locally and nationally to help reduce the cost of living so that low-income families no longer feel the 'pinch' and the economy can continue to grow.

Be it rent, food prices, transport costs or boosting social mobility, I will lobby to improve standards of living and ensuring that Brexit will bring about more opportunity for residents, particularly for goods purchase, employment options and securing decent, affordable housing.
