A proven record of success

During my time as MP, I had the privilege of standing up for the people of St Austell and Newquay in Westminster. During this time, I was able to lobby the government on numerous issues and achieved the following for our area:

  • Secured the future of Newquay airport
  • Delivered investment into St Austell railway station
  • Stopped the Tory plans for regional pay for our nurses, teachers and public workers
  • Cleaned up Newquay’s night time economy, closing 4 out of 5 lap dancing clubs
  • Led the campaign against the Tory Pasty Tax
  • Secured national minority status for Cornwall
  • Supported the creation of 4,000 new jobs
  • Doubled the number of apprenticeships
  • Provided extra money for school children through the Pupil Premium
  • Tackled pensioner poverty with the Triple Lock
  • Campaigned to protect our countryside from over development
  • Ensured millions of pounds of additional funding for school improvements
  • Helped over 12,000 individual people with casework

We need an MP with a proven track record of putting local people first and working with others to get things done.
