I am absolutely delighted to be elected to the influential Transport Select Committee. This is a real opportunity to shout louder for Devon and the South West to help secure fair funding for our region.
East Devon MP Simon Jupp has questioned the 'hugely regrettable' decision to close a Budleigh Salterton care home. He has written to care home bosses questioning them over the decision to close Abbeyfield Shandford, in Station Road.
Great to meet with West of England Mayor Tim Bowles and Mayor Palmer to discuss devolution in England. I support giving power back to the regions to ensure decisions are made by communities, not Whitehall.
We must protect Sidmouth from coastal flooding and I’m looking forward to finding out about the impact of the glass panel on the seafront. I recognise the need to keep our seafront beautiful and protected for future generations.
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.
