Today I’m pledging to help stop #puppysmuggling - I’ve read a worrying report from @dogstrust revealing horrific practices in some Eastern European countries where dogs are treated awfully and then transported hundreds of miles in horrendous conditions to be sold in the UK.
I know a lot of my constituents share my disappointment that the Adur Planning Committee decided to approve the plans for New Monks Farm. There are numerous concerns about the impact it will have on traffic, congestion and our environment.
Today was #Budget2018 - there were lots of announcements throughout the Chancellor's speech and the headlines are that the UK economy continues to be in a strong position with record employment and the lowest unemployment on record, whilst real term wage increases are at the highest in years.
Well done to Mary Candy and the Southwick Society for installing information boards on the Green with some interesting records of Southwick role in WW1. Delighted to unveil them with Adur Council Cabinet member Emma Evans.
Thanks to the fantastic Eastbrook Primary School in Southwick, which has taken 3 of the Queen's Commonwealth Canopy Trees to plant in their woodland area. Helped by some very enthusiastic house captains.
I have pledged my support to the Long Live The Local Campaign to help pubs in East Worthing and Shoreham keep their doors open. I've joined more than 100,000 people who have signed the petition so far, including 224 in East Worthing and Shoreham.
I was delighted to attended Macmillan Cancer Support's World’s Biggest Coffee Morning event in Parliament. This year’s event focused on the challenges that people can face at different stages of their cancer experience.
