Congratulations to @halfon4harlowMP for his hard work to bring Public Health England to #Harlow #PartyOfWorkers


Conservative Police and Crime Commissioners across England and Wales have shown that they are vital to making local communities safer. They have had the power to hire good chief constables and to fire bad ones, they have set policing priorities for the local area and have overseen budgets of hundreds of millions of pounds. And since the last election three and a half years ago, crime is down by more than a quarter.

It’s a serious role and only by voting for Roger Hirst in Essex can people be sure that it is done well: to work with the Government to cut crime, to spend taxpayers' money wisely, and to keep the local community safe and secure.

So on Thursday 5th May vote for Roger Hirst to be your Police and Crime Commissioner for the next four years.

Yesterday the Communities and Pubs Minister, Marcus Jones MP, came to Harlow to visit the Golden Swift pub in Hare Street. He congratulated them on becoming and Asset of Community Value which makes it much harder for the pub to be closed or sold off to developers and gives the community a chance to buy out their local pub first.

As well as introducing the Asset of Community Value classification, the Government is also freezing beer duty, reducing business rates and giving out grants that would support a community to buy out their local pub.

I was pleased to have supported the pub becoming an Asset of Community Value. Carol and Bill do a brilliant job there, not only running the pub, but for using it to support the local community too.

BioRob lives in Harlow, and was first elected Member of Parliament in 2010 and was re-elected in the 2015 General Election. He was promoted to Deputy Chairman of the Conservative Party and now attends Cabinet as a Minister without portfolio in May 2015.

Over the last five years, Robert Halfon has run a number of high-profile campaigns, including Petrol Promise, which called on the Government to lower fuel duty and cut petrol and diesel costs for hard-pressed motorists.

By the end of the last Parliament, he had successfully convinced George Osborne to scrap or delay every planned fuel duty increase since this Government came to power and the Chancellor thanked him in one of his Budgets for his work on this issue.
