The UK was the first major economy to set a legally binding target to achieve net zero emissions by 2050. I will continue to work with the government on our promises that deliver for the environment while protecting the interests of my constituents in Sleaford and North Hykeham so that we can prosper in our greener future.
As an active member of the Education Select Committee, I have worked hard to ensure the government are providing children and young people with the tools to learn and succeed and particularly through the difficulties of the pandemic.
I am proud that the constituency of Sleaford and North Hykeham is home to many Royal Air Force bases, including RAF Cranwell, RAF Digby and RAF Barkston Heath and I am grateful of all the work our military personnel do to keep us safe.
As a Consultant Paediatrician in the NHS, I am passionate that our health services and social care deliver for our local community. I will continue to use my experience in the health service to work with local leaders and Ministers on improving our NHS and supporting training and recruitment of doctors, nurses and dentists.
I will continue to press for improvements to ensure our roads are safe and reliable for all users. I successfully secured £110 million of Government investment for North Hykeham Relief Road in 2019, and I will continue to work with the Government to ensure funding for local transport connections remains a priority.
I will champion our local police force and ensure that legislation equips them with the tools and powers necessary to keep our communities safe. I will work together with Lincolnshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner to tackle offences that affect residents in Sleaford and North Hykeham, such as rural crime.
