A long-term plan to build a strong local economy with job and apprentice opportunities for all.
Locally, unemployment has fallen by 73%, we continue to support a growing economy. Opportunities for young people are a priority for me, we must ensure school leavers have bright futures. We have helped create 4,000 new apprenticeships locally.
I have also focused on helping those with long-term health issues back into work.
Make sure the will of the people to leave the EU is respected.
67% of local people voted to leave the EU as I did. I will work with Theresa May to ensure the best possible deal for our community and the UK. I want the UK to take back control of our laws and borders.
