If I am re-elected, I will go on battling hard for jobs in our area. I will support local companies – including backing AgustaWestland over the order for Apache helicopters. I will work to secure better economic infrastructure – dualling the A303/A358, improving rail services, and massively upgrading broadband. Our unemployment rate is one of the lowest in England – we need to keep that good record, but work to secure higher paid jobs too.
We need to finish off the job of balancing the Government’s budget – but we need to do this fairly, with a contribution from the most wealthy in our society.
