North West Relief Road

**Published in the Shrewsbury Chronicle on 07/09/2016**

Parliament returned this week and amongst all the noise regarding Brexit, lay a subject which I feel is of significant importance to the constituency, the North West Relief Road. The Marches Local Enterprise Partnership are coming to Parliament to discuss their submission for funding from the Local Growth Fund and the Large Local Major Schemes funding. Within that submission is the application for funding for the road, which I and many others believe will be of great benefit to the Town.

Anglo-French relations

*Published in the Shrewsbury Chronicle on 20/07/2016*

In the aftermath of the tragic event in Nice, it is only right that we unite with our neighbours and offer our unconditional support to help them through this difficult period. At times like these, it is imperative that we recognise the importance of working towards better Anglo-French relations.

Community Pubs

Pubs play a crucial role at the heart of our community and we have some fantastic examples here in Shrewsbury. That is why I am glad that the Government has introduced a series of measures to protect pubs so they can serve their communities for generations to come.

Dementia Awareness Week

*PUBLISHED ON 17 05 2016*

This week (Sunday 15th – Saturday 21st) is Dementia Awareness Week and, therefore, is a good time to talk about the work we are doing to improve Dementia care, a key priority for the Government.

European Union Referendum

As a result of this week’s announcement from Prime Minister that there is to be a referendum on the United Kingdom’s membership of the European Union (EU) on 23 June 2016, I would like to share with you my thoughts on the matter, both as an individual and as the Member of Parliament for Shrewsbury and Atcham.  

Local Government Funding Settlement for Shropshire

16 03 2016

The Government’s provisional settlement, set out in December, would have reduced the overall amount of central government funding for rural councils by over 31% over the four-year period, whereas urban councils would only have received a 22% average cut. After discussing this cut with the Council I was convinced it was wholly unfair and so had no choice but to inform the Government that I would be unable to support the Finance Bill unless major changes were made to Shropshire’s allocations.
