This afternoon I once again met the Transport Secretary Grant Shapps along with Nottinghamshire colleagues from Sherwood, Mansfield and Bolsover to ask for our Maid Marion line to be opened up for our isolated communities.
Constructive talks today with the Fire Brigade Union and my Conservative Colleague Brendan Clarke-Smith the MP for Bassetlaw. We will be working with our Fire Service throughout this Parliament to make sure their voices are heard locally.
Just finished a meeting with our fantastic Nottinghamshire Conservative MPs. We have a strong voice and today we have been talking to the Secretary of State for Local Govt about the funding and investment needs for our area.
Over 50% of an MP's enquiries are related to the local councils. Today I have met with the Chief Exec of ADC to discuss how we can work together to make our area a better place to live and work.I will also be meeting with Broxtowe and NCC in the near future.
Last night I went out with Ashfield Police for a shift policing the night time economy in Sutton & Kirkby. Sgt Jim Flint and his brilliant team were kind enough to allow me to join them in the van and shadow them throughout the night.
