Brexit Update

It has been hard to keep pace with developments over the last week.

New Primary Health Care Facility for Biddenham/Bromham

I was delighted to hear about plans to build a new primary care facility on the boundary between Biddenham and Bromham. It will be situated next to the new housing development underway in Biddenham, which has an agreement to provide a new GP surgery facility.

Agriculture Bill Update

Many amendments to the Agriculture Bill have been tabled and I appreciate the emails I continue to receive asking me to support certain ones. The Government are currently reflecting on these amendments, as well as concerns raised by colleagues and interested parties.

NSPCC’s Close the Loophole campaign

I appreciate the emails I have received recently from constituents regarding the NSPCC’s Close the Loophole campaign.  I agree that the protection of children and young people must remain a priority and understand the concerns that have been expressed.

Immigration Bill and NHS Staffing

I have been contacted by constituents recently regarding the Immigration Bill and concerns that it may affect staff numbers in the NHS and care sector.

This week's Brexit

Constituents will be aware that on Tuesday 29th January, the Commons agreed to the Prime Minister returning to the EU and seek an amendment to the Withdrawal Agreement around the issue of the ‘backstop’. I voted to support this.
