Rachel said:

“I will be voting this evening in full support of the Prime Minister.

“Under the Prime Minister’s leadership we have secured a £16.6 million Town Deal for Redditch – one of the single largest Government investments in Redditch since it became a new town in the 1960s.

“He also delivered our exit from the EU, more police on our streets, the NHS is receiving record amounts of funding and our Alexandra Hospital is set to benefit from a multi-million pound investment.

“The mistakes the Prime Minister made were serious and the behaviour exposed in the Sue Gray report was wrong. However, he has taken responsibility, apologised and put in place measures to prevent them recurring.

“I believe we must now focus all our efforts on the issues in front of us from growing the economy, creating high-skilled, high-wage jobs, cutting taxes, backing the wealth creators and ensuring Putin fails in Ukraine. This is why I will be supporting the Prime Minister.

“It is the honour of my life to represent Redditch in Parliament and I will continue to work hard to deliver on the promises I made to my constituents.”
