Paying to drive in Southampton?

We all know Southampton’s Air Quality needs improving and that we need to do this as quickly as possible.

Watch my video above to learn more…

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.
