Fifty new school construction projects across the ‘red wall’ areas of the Midlands and the North (of which Mansfield is a prime example)! Great news. I’ll be chasing the Department for Education to get the details and try to make sure we’re on the final list when it’s announced...

Ahead of big announcements this week on the recovery plans and Government's future direction, it's been brilliant to see the start of the fight back against the negative culture that has taken over so much of our national discourse and many of our institutions. The Government f...

You may have seen that Mansfield's Labour Leader has been criticising me in the press this week, making a private argument now unfortunately in to a public squabble where I have little choice but to defend myself. It's really frustrating as I've been working so constructively w...
