Jeremy Corbyn has announced today that Labour want a second referendum and would campaign to REMAIN in the EU.

In the space of two years, Labour have gone from promising to respect the largest vote in our country’s history to calling for it to be cancelled.

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.

Boris backs Freeports - A huge positive for Teesport!

I'm delighted that Boris Johnson has set out his support for Freeports if he becomes Prime Minister. This is something for which I have been campaigning alongside Ben Houchen, Tees Valley Mayor right since we were elected, and would be a huge boost to jobs and growth.

An action-packed Tuesday!

Yesterday was absolutely jam-packed! I was proud to:

✅ Secure confirmation at Treasury Select Committee that Carbon Capture and Storage is essential for heavy industry on Teesside

Standing up for our local NHS

This morning the CQC has issued its report on South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, rating the Trust as Requires Improvement.

British Steel update - bids received

I’ve been in Doncaster this morning for the weekly meeting of the British Steel taskforce with Business Secretary Greg Clark, Ben Houchen Tees Valley Mayor, the company and the trade unions.

A local business growing rapidly

So many of our local firms are doing great things, and on Friday I visited FJ Booth Construction, the structural steelworks contractor led by local man Shaun Muir.

Thanking our Armed Forces

On Armed Forces Day, thank you to everyone who joined us at Saltburn Conservative & Unionist Club for a great party today in their honour! South Tees Conservatives were joined for a really fun afternoon by Ben Houchen,Tees Valley Mayor.
