Campaigns

Supporting rural communities

I work to support rural communities and businesses.  As the MP for the constituency of Tamworth I also represent the surrounding villages so helping rural areas thrive is high on my agenda. 

Backing our pubs

Pubs and breweries are a vital part of our town centres and villages.  From multinational brewers to microbreweries like the Tamworth Tap, the drinks industry employs hundreds of people across my constituencies and thousands more all over the United Kingdom.

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.

Honour our heroes

I am calling on the people of my constituency to help name all those Tamworth heroes who have fought and died since serving in our armed forces since WW2.

Working with Rev Alan Gordon and Tamworth District and Civic Society, we aim to build a memorial to them.

Improving The Welfare Benefits System

Getting benefits right is a concern of mine, the benefit system is there as a safety net for those who need support and should not be abused.  However it is also important that for benefit claimants, the system is actually helping, not hindering their progress. 

Getting tough on crime

The increase in serious violence is worrying and sadly some people living in our area do not feel as safe as they should.
