Our Economy: The Facts

Labour have a narrative where everything keeps getting worse. It’s not helpful - and more importantly, it’s just not true.

This month’s latest figures from Office for National Statistics show:

Dialogue at the American Embassy

When it comes to incredible buildings, I can't remember many more impressive than the new United States Embassy to the UK. I visited last night with a group of colleagues to discuss a range of Anglo-American issues, and it is truly a remarkable place.

Tacking ambulance response times in East Cleveland

Improving ambulance response times can make the difference between life and death. As your MP, I am keenly focused on this issue - especially in East Cleveland where population sparsity is a challenge.

An exciting new approach to East Clevelnad buses

I know how important it is to improve public transport connections across rural East Cleveland. This is an issue I have discussed extensively with Arriva and I was personally disappointed by their recent decision relating to changes to the 5/5A service east of Skelton.

Cross-border work for our planet

I had a really positive meeting with the Italian Ambassador Raffaele Trombetta and our Energy Minister Chris Skidmore on Monday.

Majorca flights from Teesside - great news from Ben Houchen!

There's fantastic news from Ben Houchen, our Tees Valley Mayor this morning as flights to Majorca are going to return from next summer.

This is a huge step forward with Teesside Airport's rebirth and just shows what can be achieved. The clouds are parting in every sense of the word!

Boris out and about in Guisborough!

It was great to welcome Boris Johnson to our constituency today ahead of the North East hustings in Darlington! Walking up Westgate in Guisborough, he had the chance to talk to local people about issues from Brexit to British Steel. His connection with the public is simply second to none.

Restoring police officer numbers

I warmly welcome today’s pledge from Boris Johnson that he will boost police officer numbers by 20,000 if he is elected as party leader and Prime Minister this month.
