    Julian raises concerns of carers and disability groups in parliament

    At Women’s and Equalities Questions today, Julian raised concerns about businesses no longer accepting cash and how this excludes elderly customers as well as carers who are often given their client’s money to spend in cash.

    Statment on result of 1922 Committee vote of confidence in the Prime Minister

    The scale of the vote against the Prime Minister this evening is clear evidence that he no longer enjoys the full-hearted confidence of the parliamentary party and should consider his position. As someone who supported Boris Johnson in the 2019 leadership election and wants to deliver the manifesto promises made at the last general election, […]

    It has been a busy couple of weeks since I wrote my last column, as Westminster deals with the fallout from the Sue Gray report and the Chancellor moved to help families struggling with spiralling energy bills.

    Last Wednesday Julian met the Minister for Food and Farming Victoria Prentis to press her on the need for evidence-based policy to enable the use of cutting-edge science to support the production of nutritious, affordable food in the UK.

    Government listens to Julian’s call for more energy bills support with £400 discount

    I am very glad to see the government has dialled up its emergency household energy bill support with yesterday’s £400 per home discount. When the Chancellor announced his initial February council tax rebate package, I called on him to be ready to go further if the situation developed, and I am reassured he has now […]

    Statement on Sue Gray report

    The Sue Gray report clearly shows that the Prime Minister has presided over a widespread culture of disregard for coronavirus regulations. Furthermore, questions are now being raised about whether the Prime Minister misled Parliament when asked about these events. Talking to constituents, it is clear discussions about parties in Downing Street remain a damaging distraction […]

    Times Red Box article with Nigel Adams MP: Great British Railways should say Yes to York

    This government is delivering on its commitment to level up regions such as ours. Yorkshire’s economy already has world-leading industry and a population of entrepreneurs and grafters. Yet too many of our communities punch beneath their weight and deprivation is higher than in the South. If levelling-up means anything, it is the mission to unlock […]

    York Press column: How the Queen’s Speech can level-up York

    With nearly forty bills that will deliver on some of the Conservative Party’s biggest manifesto pledges, the Queen’s Speech last week was also an opportunity to add more flesh to the bone of what levelling-up really is. Of course, my priority will always be how we can level-up York to provide more diverse opportunities for […]
