Fighting for the issues that matter most to you!

EU Referendum – Your Opinion Counts

Paying to drive in Southampton?

Now the fuss of the Budget has died down we must once again turn our attention to the one thing that will affect every single one of us in one way or another – the United Kingdom’s departure from the European Union. I have received many letters and emails about what deal we should be pushing for, whether we should leave with no deal and trade on World Trade Organisation (WTO) rules or have another referendum. My position has been clear throughout. The country was given a choice and voted to leave the EU. We must carry out the wishes of the British people and we will. 

When the Prime Minister announced her Chequers proposals I had a flurry of correspondence denouncing it. Disagreement is healthy but it soon became clear that many of those who contacted me hadn’t looked at the detail. I have trouble with Chequers myself and I hope we can find a solution that those of us committed to leaving can accept before we vote on the final deal which is potentially coming next month.

To help me decide what to do in the best interests of my constituents I have put together a short survey which can be found below.

I know this will only be a snapshot of peoples views but will be helpful for me in considering the issue.

Please remember to complete your name, house number and postcode at the end of the survey so I can verify you live in my constituency.

I am proud to have been elected as the Member of Parliament for the Southampton Itchen Constituency again in 2017 and I have now been an MP here since 2015.

As someone who has lived here all of my life, I know and understand the area intimately and will fight for the issues that matter most to you; your concerns are my concerns. I want to make Southampton and its residents safer, more prosperous and to make our city one of which we can all be proud.

Thank you for your support.
