Fairer funding for Leicestershire

For too long, Leicestershire hasn't received a fair share of funding compared to other parts of the Country.

The funding formula no longer demonstrates a clear and strong enough link to need, and the costs incurred in actually providing services.

Improving housing and planning

I care passionately about preserving our beautiful landscapes, villages and towns. I’ll fight to change the planning system which puts development in the wrong places, is biased in favour of developers and ties the hands of local councillors. 

Backing our Schools

I am a strong advocate of good education and I am fighting for fair funding for our schools.

As well as visiting schools across the constituency, I have also met a number of pupils during school visits to the Parliamentary Education Centre.

Better road, rail service and broadband

I am campaigning for investment in our roads, rail service and broadband. Improving these basic infrastructure elements can help to bring more businesses and jobs to the constituency and enable people to work flexibly and efficiently.
