Protecting The Environment

Looking after our environment is one of the most important issues of this generation. The Wealden countryside is one of the most beautiful parts of the country, and I want to make sure that we pass on a healthy and clean environment to our children.

Working with Wealden Schools

I regularly invite schools up to Parliament to show them round the Palace of Westminster, one of Britain's most historic buildings, and I regularly visit schools across Wealden, one of the most rewarding parts of being an MP. If you would be interested in a tour of Parliament for your school, or

Backing Local Business

This Government has already put together a package to help small businesses – Keeping corporation tax down, reducing National Insurance contribution to access to start up loans. Britain’s economy is growing faster than any other economy in Europe, with 760,000 more businesses created since 2010 and 2 million new apprenticeships.

Celebrating Women's Suffrage

Celebrating a hundred years since women won the right to vote and stand for election for the first time. This momentous anniversary is an important milestone in our nation's history.

Improving Train Services

Regular, reliable and affordable rail services are crucial for a huge number of my constituents, whether they are commuting into London for work or travelling locally from Uckfield, Buxted, Crowborough, Eridge and Wadhurst.

Dear Colleague Letters

Government Ministers circulate "Dear Colleague Letters" which layout and explain major Government policy proposals, bills before Parliament and announcements. You can view them all here to find out more information about Government policy.

Foreign Affairs Select Committee Work (2017-2018)

In September, I was honoured to be elected to the Foreign Affairs Committee by my colleagues. On the Foreign Affairs Committee, I held the Foreign Office and its ministers to account, examining its expenditure, administration and policy. 

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.

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.

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