A top priority for me is supporting businesses in Leicester West to thrive and prosper. So it was great to take part in a debate with East Midlands Chamber of Commerce so that I could explain how I’d do just that.

On Wednesday 3rd May I officially launched my campaign to be re-elected as the MP for Leicester West. I love our city and I’ve always worked hard to put the interests of local people first. I’ll be asking for your support on June 8th to carry on doing just that.

My priorities for Leicester West are:

  • You – I will always put local people first and fight your corner
  • Good local jobs – Backing Leicester’s businesses to create more jobs that pay a decent wage
  • Our NHS – Fighting to keep children’s heart surgery at Glenfield, for decent care for our older people and a fair pay rise for NHS staff
  • Opportunities for young people – Championing great local schools and high quality apprenticeships
  • Safe neighbourhoods –Tackling crime and anti-social behaviour; supporting our police and armed forces.

I was also delighted to have my campaign endorsed by Baroness Doreen Lawrence.

On Wednesday 12th April 2017 I held a public meeting in New Parks with our local police and Leicestershire’s Police and Crime Commissioner, Lord Willy Bach. Local residents raised a range of concerns about crime and especially anti-social behaviour, which is making too many people’s lives a misery.

I am determined to make sure people’s views about these issues are heard loud and clear. If you are a constituent in Leicester West and are experiencing problems like this, please get in touch with my office on either by writing to 42 Narborough Road, Leicester, LE3 0BQ, via email at {at} parliament(.)uk or phone on 0116 2044980.

On Wednesday 12th April I visited City of Sanctuary a charity that runs a wide range of projects supporting refugees and asylum seekers of all backgrounds.

I met with volunteers to discuss the vital work they do, the challenges refugees and asylum seekers face and what more should be done to support them in future.
