I was honoured to represent the people of Walsall North at the laying of the colours of the 3rd Battalion the Mercian Regiment (Staffords) at Lichfield Cathedral earlier in January. I am proud of our armed forces; those who serve to protect us.
It was wonderfully festive and busy during the last few weeks of 2017 in both Walsall North and Westminster. I found myself rushing around Parliament from Christmas events to voting on the very important EU Withdrawal Bill which has now passed the next Parliamentary stage.
Theresa May’s recent Florence speech made clear that Britain is leaving the European Union (EU). Brexit will happen, delivering the overwhelming wish of the people of Bloxwich, Willenhall and north Walsall.
