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.

I recently visited Environmental Studies, a local family run company that provides young people with skills, experience and practical knowledge in the land based sector and conservation.

Students carry out challenging and physical work like fencing, dry stone walling, tree felling and woodland management. They can get qualifications as well as develop their self-confidence and problem solving skills.

Environmental Studies is planning to expand their work, including with training in construction. Initiatives like this are vital to ensuring all young people get the skills and opportunities they need to thrive.

On Monday 6th February I questioned the Education Minister on the Government’s plans to cut funding for nine schools in some of the most deprived parts of Leicester West.

It is completely wrong to cut funding for pupils who need help the most. That’s why I have written to the Education Secretary Justine Greening demanding she reverse the cuts and protect funding for schools in Leicester West.

You can watch my question and the Minister Nick Gibb’s response here, or read the full debate here.

On Tuesday 24th January I questioned the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union on how the Government plans to get the best possible deal for the country following the vote to leave the EU.

Parliament must get a vote on the final deal between Britain and the EU to ensure the best future for jobs, living standards and national prosperity.
