Speaking in the House about the challenge of supporting rural communities

February 10, 2016

 

I've been speaking in the House today during a debate about the new Local Government Funding Settlement to lay out the benefits of the new scheme and to fight for rural areas, like many in my constituency, where access to services is much more difficult and where the population is generally more elderly.

 

It's only 5 minutes, have a watch as I think it lays out my views very clearly. Ashfield Council's bins plan gets a quick mention too!
