Orpington

As well as representing you in Westminster, I am working tirelessly to deliver for Orpington and the surrounding villages. Below is my latest work, delivering for you.
Keeping Orpington safe
 
I am fighting to get more police on the beat on our streets. As the Government recruits 20,000 extra officers nationally, I am pushing to ensure Orpington gets its fair share of those officers. 

As more police officers are recruited across London we will be able to improve local policing in our community to deter criminal behaviour and reassure residents. 
More funding for Orpington's schools

I promised in last December's General Election that I would secure extra funding for Orpington's schools, and I am proud to have delivered on that pledge.

 

Our schools will be receiving a £1.3 million funding boost after I raised concerns with the Secretary of State for Education. This funding boost will help ensure that Orpington's children and young people continue to receive an excellent education.

Supporting local businesses

Across the Orpington constituency, the Government's unprecedented action has protected thousands of jobs, incomes, and businesses throughout this crisis.

Together with local businesses and business groups, I have been encouraging people to shop locally to help Orpington bounce back after coronavirus. By supporting local businesses, we can all help to protect, support and create jobs.
