Really enjoyed my visit to Hertford Regional College this week with their local MP, Charles Walker. I met with lots of their students who gave me some brilliant ideas about how we can keep promoting apprenticeships to give them the prestige they deserve. ... See MoreSee Less

Well done Trudy Harrison who has won an historic Parliamentary By-Election for the Conservatives in Copeland (www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-39064149).

With the Government following through the wishes of the people on Brexit, cutting taxes for lower earners, bringing through the National Living Wage, freezing fuel duty, protecting the NHS and investing in millions of Apprenticeships, the Conservatives are the real Workers Party.

During the campaign, I met Trudy Harrison, who has a real passion for Apprenticeships. You can see her passion for Skills and Apprentices here:

I have been contacted by a few residents recently about The Children's Society’s campaign for a statutory breathing space scheme for families in debt.

I think this is a great idea and would be a massive help to struggling, hard working families. I am very pleased that the Government is committed to exploring whether some form of 'breathing space' would be a useful and viable addition to the range of debt solutions available. The Treasury and the Insolvency Service have been asked to explore and identify possible options and have begun work on a review.

The Government has already taken action to reduce levels of personal debt. Household debt as a proportion of income fell to 142 per cent in 2016, down from a peak of 160 per cent in 2008. Our plan for a higher wage, lower welfare society makes it easier for families and working people to save. I'm also very pleased that the new National Living Wage will mean a pay boost for 1.7 million workers this year.
