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.
I spent this morning with the Chief Exec, Medical Director and Chief Nurse touring the hospital meeting and greeting the fantastic staff who work so hard for us 365 days a year. We are very lucky to have such a great hospital on our doorstep.
