Holding Government to Account

Written questions allow Members of Parliament to ask government ministers for information on the work, policy and activities of government departments. They are a valuable tool which MPs can use to hold government to account, and I am keen to use them as best I can to seek out information which can be used to improve things for my constituents in Wealden.

Access to the internet is no longer a luxury – it is a vital necessity which we need every day at home, school and work. And it is also no longer good enough that people have to put up with slow speeds, unreliable connectivity and poor customer service from their broadband providers.

Home Affairs Committee Work (2015-2017)

Select Committees are cross-party groups of MPs which check and report on the work of government departments, as well as on more general issues of public concern and interest within a particular policy area.When I started out as your MP, I was honoured to be elected by my new colleagues as a member of the Home Affairs Select Committee, the committee which holds the Home Secretary and her department to account for its work and policies.

Caring For Our Elderly

I’m honoured to have been a former Chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Ageing and Older People.

I consider it my first duty to do whatever I have to do to keep the people of Wealden safe. One of the best ways in which I can do that is to support and stand up for our Armed Forces in Parliament.
