Schools & Education
Since I was first elected in 2017, I’ve been working hard to end the historical underfunding of schools in Worcestershire. We are now seeing more money going into our schools, whilst at the same time standards are rising.

When I’ve been out talking to residents on the doorstep, crime & anti-social behaviour are consistently the top two issues my constituents raise with me.
Since I was elected I have voted for the biggest increase in police funding since 2010, supported tougher sentences & measures to equip police officers with the tools they need to protect themselves.
By the end of 2019 there will be more police on our streets here in Redditch. North Worcestershire policing area will have an extra 35 officers patrolling it.
And following the Prime Minister’s pledge to recruit an additional 20,000 police officers, this could mean an extra 360 officers for West Mercia.
Climate change is a serious and pressing concern. I know that many Redditch residents care deeply about our environment. The UK has a leading role to play in tackling climate change. However, this also needs urgent attention from the Governments of the world.

It is the job of any MP to support businesses. After all, they create jobs and boost our town’s economy. There are now 355 more businesses here in Redditch since 2010.
I’m currentlly running a mentors scheme in Redditch, bringing together schools and businesses to ensure our children get the best start in life. For more information on this scheme please click here.

In 2016, 62% of voters in Redditch voted to leave the European Union. Just one year later I was elected on a manifesto committment to deliver Brexit and that’s what I’m determined to do.
I am committed to getting Brexit delivered on or before October 31st, deal or no deal.

I became interested in this topic for the simple reason that it started affecting me.
Ever since I joined campaigners on this journey to a society where the menopause is no longer a taboo subject, we have achieved a lot. I’m incredibly proud to have got menopause education on the school curriculum.

Redditch in pole position to benefit from Birmingham 2022
With Redditch just 12 miles away from Birmingham, I will fight as hard as I can to make sure our town benefits from the 2022 Commonwealth Games which will be held in the UK’s second city.

Fighting for Brockhill Residents
For far too long now, residents of Batchley & Brockhill have had to put up with longstanding issues regarding Persimmon Homes, and the fact they still haven’t handed over ownership of paths and open spaces to Redditch Borough Council.
I’m working with local councillors & the Borough Council to see an end to this saga. For updates on this campaign click here.
