Congratulations to Our A level Students!

Congratulations to everyone receiving their results today in Brentwood and Ongar. These results are the culmination of two years of dedication and hard work, and I know many of you have had sleepless nights in recent days waiting for these results to come out.

Brentwood and Ongar is Working

Figures released today by the independent Office of National Statistics (ONS) show that more people are in work than ever before. Under the Conservatives, 3 million people are back in work since 2010, and the level of people out of work is at the lowest level in over 40 years.

Broadband or BroadBAD?

This part of the world is really fantastically well connected. By air, we have Southend and Stansted near by. By road, we have the A12 and A127, the M25 and M11. By rail, we have C2C, TfL and Greater Anglia carrying thousands of commuters to and from our towns.

Booming Brentwood Business

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been hearing increasingly good news about the business outlook for Brentwood. It’s clear that some major companies are investing in the town centre.

An Excellent Start in Life

Education has always been extremely important in my house. My parents were both teachers and, after I left university, I became one myself.

Education Funding 2017

Since becoming the Member of Parliament for Brentwood and Ongar last month I have been speaking to head teachers in the constituency about the challenges they face.

Elizabeth Line Update from TfL

TfL have been in touch with an update on the planned timetable for the Elizabeth Line when it opens fully from Shenfield to Reading in 2019. More immediately, please note there will be a rail replacement bus service between Liverpool Street and Shenfield on August 27th and 28th this summer. 

United Against Dementia in Parliament

There are 850,000 people living with dementia in the UK and it is the 21st Century’s biggest killer. Having dementia can have a devastating impact on the day-to-day lives of people with dementia and their families, and could happen to any one of us, in any community.
