Since my election I have established a proven track record of securing investment, safeguarding jobs, and backing businesses in the Gosport area. In 2010 I pushed for the Daedalus site to become one of the Government’s Enterprise Zones; £38 million has now been invested. I helped to secure £8.5 million improvements to Newgate Lane, am lobbying the Government for a further £90 million package of local road improvements, and by supporting local apprenticeships the Gosport constituency now has the 2nd highest number of apprentices in the South-East.
If re-elected I will continue to focus on four key issues:
1) Improving transport links
2) Maximising the potential of the Daedalus Enterprise Zone
3) Backing small businesses and rejuvenating the Gosport High Street
4) Supporting education and training
As a truly local MP who has lived in South Hampshire all my life, I will continue to stand up on the issues that matter most to my constituents.
