Brexit Negotiations

The government is still hopeful of reaching a deal with the EU about the terms of our leaving and future relationship. However, the EU is saying that a sticking point is the question over the Irish border. I believe this to be a red herring.

Overcoming barriers to zero carbon homes

I met with constituents to discuss issues surrounding renewable energy, including how the government can help support and promote the industry. We discussed a wide range of issues including ideas on how to overcome barriers to zero carbon homes.

I have just returned from Conservative Party Conference, which is not only a time for discussing party political issues, but to meet with a wide range of charities and organisations to discuss their campaigns.
