Recently he has secured Government funding for the redoubling of the Swindon-Kemble railway line, reopened the Stratton Post Office and extended the opening hours of the Bourton Post Office. He played a critical role in opening the new Surgery in Moreton-in-Marsh and initiated the community and schools facilities in Wotton-under-Edge. He assisted the Royal Agricultural College in gaining full University status and has continued to work with the National Star College to fill the gap in their funding.
He successfully campaigned for terminally-ill patients to have access to experimental medicines on behalf of his late constituent Les Halpin. He plans to continue campaigning to achieve a satisfactory solution to the A417 ‘missing link’ as well as maintaining a broad range of health and ambulance services across the constituency. He convinced the County Council to establish a new multi-agency flood action group which follows the public flood meetings he chairs every six months to bring together representatives from all relevant agencies.
