I have lived in the constituency all my life, first in Cockfosters, then Winchmore Hill and now Southgate with my wife Janet and 6 children - and dog Cholmeley! I have greatly appreciated the opportunity to speak up for our local area since being elected in 2015 and seek your support to continue to be your MP for the next 5 years.
I have been a leading voice in Parliament on many issues since the last election. I successfully led opposition to extending Sunday Trading laws, which would have impacted upon small businesses and family life. Following long campaigns, I got laws passed to ban the supply of "legal highs", protect cultural heritage, prevent homelessness and make relationships education compulsory in schools.
I secured changes to Universal Credit which means a £700 million tax cut for low income famimies by 2021/22. I also got the Government to agree support for refugees, restrict online sales of knives, and provide additional help for disabled people.
On Brexit, whether you voted Leave or Remain, you need the strong leadership of Theresa May to get the best deal, and an MP who will get your voice heard. So vote for me on June 8th to continue to be your strong local voice.
My Campaign Pledges
I will continue to champion my local area and serve constituents with honesty and integrity and pledge the following:
Secure Strong Leadership Certainty and StabilityI will support Theresa May's plan for a global, outward looking Britain and a fairer economy which works for everyone.
Lower Taxes and More JobsI will support measures to make work pay and back small businesses with lower job taxes.
Support Families and Help the VulnerableI will support stronger relationships and families and be a voice for the voiceless, the homeless and disabled.
Provide Real Opportunity for AllI will support giving everyone a chance in life with good schools, health care and affordable housing.
Protect Local EnvironmentI will support effective action to reduce pollution and protect our green spaces. I will continue to oppose the current Cycle Enfield scheme.
