A Taste of Cornwall

Thu, 14/03/2024 - 13:00
Last weekend, there were celebrations in towns across Cornwall to mark St Piran’s Day.  Over the past few years, we have seen a growing interest in Cornwall’s history and culture. Camborne, Redruth, and Hayle are at the very heart of this revival, and it’s great to see these great industrial towns…

Reducing Animal Testing

Thu, 07/03/2024 - 13:00
Parliament recently held a debate on the use of animals in testing which I spoke in.  In 1986, this country introduced the Animals (Scientific Procedures) Act. At the time, it was seen as world-leading and as the gold standard, with its three Rs principles: to replace animal testing wherever…

Confronting County Lines and Building Resilient Communities

Thu, 15/02/2024 - 13:00
One of the persistent challenges that the local police have faced over the past ten years is the problem of so called "county lines" drug gangs and all the associated violence, antisocial behaviour, poverty, and ruined lives that goes with it.   Many of these gangs originate from major cities like…

Community Radio

Thu, 08/02/2024 - 13:00
Last Friday I visited CHBN Radio which is based at Treliske Hospital for an interview about my journey into politics and the highs and lows along the way.  Keith Naylor was the interviewer and he is one of dozens of volunteers who help the Friends of RCHT Hospital provide support to the community…

The Media Bill

Thu, 01/02/2024 - 13:00
This week the Government's Media Bill continued its progress through the House of Commons, and I tabled several amendments to try to improve it and to try to retain incentives for publishers and newspapers to aspire to meet certain standards of journalism. The first of my amendments relates to…

The Importance of Early Literacy

Thu, 25/01/2024 - 13:00
There are around forty schools in this constituency and I have always tried to visit each of the secondary schools at least once a year and the primary schools at least once every five years.  In recent weeks I have visited Bodriggy, Rosemellin, Connor Downs and Mount Hawke.  In particular, I have…

Supporting Wronged Postmasters

Thu, 18/01/2024 - 13:00
Last week, it became clear how effective well-made TV drama can move and shape public opinion. It is an issue that has been ongoing for some time.  MPs across the country have been raising cases with the Post Office and with the Government.  This has promoted reviews and inquiries and legal action…

A New Year with Lots to Do

Thu, 11/01/2024 - 13:00
You win some and you lose some as the saying goes.  In politics, you can't always get the outcome you want however much you fight.  Towards the end of last year, there were two issues affecting our area that were taking up some of my time. Firstly, the good news.  The Government has decided to…

A New Year

Mon, 01/01/2024 - 13:00
The year ahead will be an important one for the world of politics because there will be a General Election at some point.  In theory, the very latest date possible would be January 2025 but I don't think people would welcome political campaigning over the Christmas period.   The most likely date is…

Christmas 2023

Fri, 22/12/2023 - 13:00
There are just a few days to Christmas and another week until we turn the page on 2023 and look forward to 2024.   Internationally, 2023 has been marked by traumatic wars overseas as Russia's aggression against Ukraine has continued and as we have seen terrible violence in Israel and Gaza in the…

Developing Confidence through Education

Thu, 14/12/2023 - 13:00
Last week, I visited a fabulous charity that operates out of the Wesley Chapel in Camborne.  Ignite You uses music and dance to support people with special needs or disabilities in West Cornwall.  It aims to use dance to keep people active, stimulate the mind and help people find new friends, get…

A Case for Legal Immigration

Thu, 07/12/2023 - 13:00
Over the last couple of weeks, there has been considerable debate about levels of immigration to the UK following the latest statistics which showed a sharp increase in the number coming here under working visas. There is often a danger that the issue of illegal migration and the crisis in the…

The Importance of a Strong Manufacturing Industry

Thu, 30/11/2023 - 13:00
I have always felt that this country does not value manufacturing as much as it should.  For decades, too much credence has been placed on the service economy and financial services like banking to try to carry us through.  This was a mistake in my view.  Sustainable economic growth, evenly…
