Flax Mill

Many Shrewsbury residents will understand the historic importance of Ditherington Flaxmill Maltings. They will also, I’m sure, share my frustration that that the site has been left abandoned since the 1980’s.

Pension Freedoms are the right reform

This Government’s Pension reforms are a policy that I am fully in support of. People who have worked hard and saved hard all their lives should be trusted with their own finances. That is why the Chancellor set out to remove the effective requirements to buy an annuity and is giving people greater flexibility in accessing their pensions. Everybody’s circumstances are unique and it should not be for the state to dictate how someone spends their savings.

Government to create a transparent and robust recall mechanism

The Government recently published a Bill to create a transparent and robust recall mechanism, this is a policy I agree with and will mean that constituents are able to recall their MP if they are found to have engaged in serious wrongdoing. Under its provisions MPs will be held to account between elections, but at the same time will not be left vulnerable to attack by those who simply disagree with them.

Shrewsbury Chronicle Article 15/7/2014

During last week’s village hall meeting in the Darwin Centre Frankwell I asked the audience whether they thought that Shropshire Council service standards has been maintained or improved over the last 4 years. The clear majority believed the Council had maintained or improved standards. This viewpoint is a clear nod of approval for a Council that has just announced it will be freezing Council Tax for the 5th year in a row.
