Working hard for Workington constituency

Working hard for Workington constituency

Since my election as your MP four years ago, I have worked hard as a strong voice for our area in Parliament.

I have campaigned on many important issues on behalf of local people and businesses – including healthcare, education, nuclear, flooding, policing and justice, transport, broadband, and mobile phone connectivity.

I have a record of delivering for West Cumbria and the Solway. If re-elected, I will continue my fight to ensure that the needs of local people are a priority for the Government.

My Pledges to You:

I will continue to fight to retain services at the West Cumberland Hospital, keep inpatient beds at community hospitals, and invest in social care and mental health services.

I strongly support the nuclear new-build at Moorside and our workforce at Sellafield, as chair of the All-Party Group on nuclear energy.

I will fight for flooded residents and businesses, ensuring that we get the necessary investment in flood protection schemes and that flood insurance is affordable for all.

I will campaign for the much needed investment in our infrastructure – our main roads, the Cumbrian Coast railway line, high- speed broadband, and mobile phone connectivity.

I will fight for investment in education and skills. We need to tackle our serious recruitment problems by ”growing our own”, locally training more teachers, doctors and nurses.

I am not currently an MP, as Parliament has been dissolved until after the General Election.
