Simon has met Energy Ministers including Secretary of State Greg Clark (pictured in Guisborough) for talks about how local industry can work in partnership with the Government to deliver the first Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) operation in Britain.
Simon is backing local businesses large and small to succeed and bring jobs to our area. Unemployment is down by almost 50% in Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland over the past 7 years but there is much more to do.
Steel has been at the heart of many of the communities within our constituency over the years, both directly with British steel, SSI, and Tata, and indirectly with hundreds of local companies that support the industry.
Simon wants to improve connectivity in our area in all its different forms, from tackling poor internet quality in Coulby Newham to ending the culture of neglect that has seen some of East Cleveland's towns like Loftus abandoned and ignored for far too long.
