Europe Statement from Michael

The Government is enacting Brexit because we asked the British people and they expressed a clear preference to leave the EU, with the leave side receiving 1,269,501 more votes than the Remain side, and actually 58.4% of Northampton Borough voters voted to leave.

Tackling Crime and its Causes

I will work with Northamptonshire Police to reduce crime in our town. We need coordinated, local solutions to tackle crime and the causes of crime – including anti-social behaviour. 

 

Supporting Local Business

I visit local businesses regularly, listening to their concerns and helping them grow our local economy. By working with business we have already reduced unemployment by 51% since 2010 and we will continue to build on this work.

Investing in our NHS

An extra £20.5 billion for the NHS, whilst cutting red tape. The money will go to nurses and doctors, helping residents get the best possible care.

 

Backing our Local Schools

The core schools budget is at its highest ever and more children than ever are now in good or outstanding schools as a result. I will continue to support our schools in Northampton North so that even more of our children will benefit.

Local Government Reform

The County Council’s management was not working for residents, which is why it’s being replaced. I will work with residents to make sure the new council works for Northampton North and protects our town’s heritage.
