Opinions

Scarborough and Whitby

Can you remember a time when there has been so much good news in our area? 

Youth vote

We want to help our young people succeed.

Education

We really have some brilliant schools in North Yorkshire.  That’s because we have some of the best teachers in the country.  When schools do have shortcomings, OFSTED has worked with them to fix the problems.

NHS

The National Health Service is the greatest of our national assets.  Like you, I rely on the NHS for my family’s health. The Government’s health reforms have put the doctors back in charge.

EU

Conservative government will deliver an in/out referendum before the end of 2017.  We will negotiate a new relationship with Europe and then put that before the British people. 

Economy

Britain has a long term economic plan and it’s a plan that is working here in Scarborough and Whitby.  We inherited the biggest deficit in peacetime history.  We took some tough decisions in the teeth of criticism from Labour but now they are paying off.  Britain is growing faster than any major economy in the world.

NHS

The Government’s health reforms have focused on the role of the GP.  Local doctors are best placed to commission local health services, as they understand local needs.

Immigration

The last Government failed to control immigration with net migration of 2.5 million. That is why this Government is cracking down on those here illegally and working hard to reduce net migration.
