In the news
A new era under a new leader
Well, what an interesting week. Just a couple of weeks ago, I had two one-on-one meetings with the then Chancellor and the then Health Secretary, talking not about leadership but economic policy, and support for hospitals in Cambridge. Five days later, Rishi Sunak and Sajid Javid both resigned from Government. I immediately issued a second letter of no confidence in the Prime Minister and published the first one I had submitted a month earlier which helped trigger the first no-confidence vote. Those tuned into my social media will have seen copies of both my letters to the 1922 Committee calling for him to go.
Whoever the next Prime Minister is, I will be working with them to help the constituents of South Cambridgeshire and ensure a better future for everyone. Its been a packed month in the constituency, and you can scroll down to find out more about how I have been:
- Polling constituents on who should be the next prime minister. Thanks to the 1,220 people who gave their opinions – Rishi Sunak was the clear favourite with 27% of the vote.
- Surveying residents in Sawston to tackle issues that concern residents, including the state of roads and the former Barclays Bank eyesore.
- Meeting with the Health Secretary to push for specialist hospitals and a pay rise for NHS staff.
- Pushing the investigations into reports of toxic water in Great Shelford, and receiving an update from the Minister for Water.
- Assisting constituents with passport applications, schooling concerns, emergency support, Homes for Ukraine applications, and over 1,000 other issues.
My letters of no confidence in the Prime Minister. As I say in them both, it is time to restore trust in politics and competence in government.

Fighting for South Cambridgeshire
A one-to-one meeting I had with the health secretary discussing funding for new hospitals and a review of NHS pay in Cambridge to give NHS workers here a high cost of living allowance.
