I have been the Member of Parliament for Southampton Itchen since 2015. I am the former Leader of Southampton City Council, having served as the Councillor for Harefield Ward – where I was born – from 2000 until 2016.
I have worked in both the private and public sectors, which offers useful experience to help me approach the key issues that face Southampton most effectively. My career spans four decades – I started by serving in the Royal Air Force as an aircraft engineer working with the Nimrod aircraft. I later spent 16 years as a maintenance engineer at British Airways. I have also run local businesses in the city.
I hope you find this website helpful and informative. Please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.
