The new year is an opportunity to set out our goals for the 12 months ahead.
So, here are four of my priorities in 2022:
- Marriage Bill – ending child marriage in this country to safeguard children’s futures, through my Marriage and Civil Partnerships (Minimum Age) Bill
- Great British Railways – bring the HQ of GBR to Derby, as the most appropriate home of our railway industry
- City of Culture – help Derby’s bid for the 2025 competition to be the UK City of Culture – including the World Heritage site in Mid Derbyshire
- End trophy hunting imports to the UK and pressing the Government for swift action through the Animals Abroad Bill.
I will be pushing for action in all of these key areas over the course of this year – making Mid Derbyshire a better and more prosperous place for all of my constituents.
