Supporting sustainable development
As a Conservative MP I do of course always support the creation of further employment and investment in both the local and national economy, however it is important that this development comes in a sustainable manner; not at the expense of our local environment and local infrastructure.
Fairer funding for Leicestershire
I am firmly committed to working with Leicestershire County Council to deliver fairer funding for Leicestershire. Leicestershire has, for a number of years, had a low level of spend relative to other local authorities, which has created pressures on spending and budgetary savings.
