Last Friday, I had a really interesting chat with Manor Academy students and I didn't even have to leave my office! 

The Student Senate took part in a Digital Surgery, which is a great initiative by The Politics Project. It was great to have a chat with the students and answer q...

In my last post, I had not yet made up my mind about the motion relating to Brexit. 

The key point was that Parliament had votes on a non-binding motion that does not affect the PM's strategy or the way forward one bit. As I said previously, it was a box ticking exercise to meet...

I'm really pleased to see that, due to changes in workplace pensions, 10 million more people are now saving for retirement. 

New figures show that 9,000 people in Mansfield and Warsop are now enrolled in a workplace pension.

Lots of people have told me they aren't sure who is responsible for the issue they have raised and end up being passed around between Councils. I wanted to help, and just take a minute (literally a minute) to explain how Government works for us in Mansfield.

Yesterday, I held a Westminster Hall debate on nurture care and early intervention. Education is something I am very passionate about - I actually always thought I'd be a teacher when I was younger before I ended up here! 

I think it’s really important to talk about how tou...

A few days ago I posted a video to Facebook where I asked if anyone would be interested in a couple of posts talking about what the functions of local government are.

After some great feedback I've decided to start a little video series where I try and explain some of the main a...

Today I met with Liz Truss to talk about the upcoming Government Spending Review and share my thoughts on what the priorities should be. 

I took this opportunity to discuss investing in front-line Policing and in our education system, particularly primary schools and further edu...

I met with NIDAS this week to talk about their campaign to raise awareness about domestic abuse. I totally agree with them that we should be open and have a conversation about domestic abuse. Have a read about their campaign over on the Chad.

Obviously, not all abuse is physical...
