2021 A-Level, AS-Level and GCSE grades consultation

Over recent weeks I have spent a lot of time speaking to the secondary school headteachers in my constituency including The Warriner School, Whitelands Academy and The Cooper School. They share my disappointment that children will not be able to sit their exams as anticipated this summer.

Covid-19 Business Grants

I know how hard local businesses have been hit by the return to national restrictions. From the emails and conversations I have had with constituents, I know many are keen to access the financial support available to them in the face of closures and extraordinary challenges.

Visit to Bicester Vaccination Centre

New localised tier system

Last night, MPs voted on the new localised tier system. I have received lots of emails from concerned constituents. I can assure them all that I understand the strength of feeling on this matter. The past year has been difficult for us all.
