Sunday 27th January was Holocaust Memorial Day and I was honoured and humbled last week to join other MPs and sign the Holocaust Educational Trust’s Book of Commitment in Parliament.
The Holocaust Educational Trust was founded in 1988 during the passage of the War Crimes Act. Their aim is to raise awareness and understanding in schools and amongst the wider public of the Holocaust and its relevance today.

As your local Member of Parliament, above all else, I am here to help my constituents wherever I can and after what was certainly an eventful week in Westminster, it was back to Staffordshire Moorlands for surgery appointments.

The Government's Brexit deal

I have received many letters and emails from residents in Staffordshire Moorlands sharing their views and concerns on the Government's proposed deal to leave the European Union.
