'I intend to be a strong voice for our constituency' says Grantham MP Gareth Davies
Gareth Davies, MP for Grantham and Stamford, writes:
A new year and a new decade is upon us and I could not be more grateful to be your new Member of Parliament for the Grantham and Stamford constituency, or more optimistic about our country for the years ahead.
The result of our recent General Election delivered a clear message from the British people, and a ringing endorsement from our constituents here in Lincolnshire.
We were told to get on with Brexit and build a country underpinned by economic freedom and strong public services.
With all the indecision of the last few years, it feels as if a weight has been lifted and MPs can now get on with the business of not just delivering the result of the 2016 referendum, but we are also able to give urgent attention to investing in our public services which have been overshadowed by it for so long.
Once we deliver Brexit, we can focus on tackling crime by boosting our police force, improving education by levelling up spending on our school pupils and bolstering our NHS. These are the priorities at the heart of this new Conservative government’s pledge to unleash Britain’s potential.
As for my New Year’s resolutions, I intend to be a strong voice for our constituency in Westminster and fight for the key concerns we have here, for example making sure that we have the infrastructure, police and healthcare services needed to support our growing population.
For the coming months I will be pressing ministers, asking questions and arranging meetings to push these priorities forward for us.
In our constituency I will be supporting and promoting all of the many wonderful independent businesses, shops and pubs. We have to make sure that our local economy is strong and continues to prosper.
2020 promises to be a year of great change and progress for our country and I want to make sure that this is also true for Grantham, Stamford, Bourne and all of our local villages.
I wish you all a wonderful Christmas and a very happy New Year.
