Great to meet with Chancellor Sajid Javid with fellow Devon MP Selaine Saxby to highlight the need to invest in the South West. Whether it’s the A303 or Dawlish, I will always push for the funding we need to improve our region.
I’m proud to support Devon’s fishermen. Fish is a staple of many Devonians diets and a crucial part of our economy. Great to speak to the National Federation of Fishermen's Organisations and people from Devon’s fishing industry this afternoon.
Delighted the Government is bringing forward its target of ending rough sleeping from 2027 to 2024. East Devon and Exeter will receive over £1.1m to help people off the streets and back on their feet. Nobody should have to sleep out in the cold.
Pleased to support the crew at Budleigh Salterton fire station as they raise money for Prostate Cancer UK today. I did a couple of miles in the uniform and breathing apparatus. I couldn’t do what they do and I’ll always support our firefighters.
I had a busy day in East Devon with a surgery in Exmouth and a meeting with Inspector Antonia Weeks to discuss crime & policing. I also spoke to Devon County Cllrs Trail, Scott & Davis about plans to extend and improve Dinan Way in Exmouth.
