Delighted the Government has confirmed it will scrap the Golborne Link. Having made the case strongly against since its inception, I'm extremely pleased for my constituents who would have been affected:

Very welcome news that a more positive outlook for travel means that Manchester Airport is now recruiting for a range of job opportunities. If you are interested, they are running a virtual jobs fair next Tues 25th Jan 👇

👓 My article from the Telegraph reflecting on this Government's philosophy toward Covid restrictions 👇

Manchester Airports Group is hosting a ‘Runway to Recovery’ virtual event on Wednesday 8th Dec:

✈️local businesses can understand airport procurement process and upcoming opportunities
✈️ receive a business update from each Airport MD
✈️meet like-minded businesses

Remembering Chapel Street, Altrincham in the House of Commons Garden of Remembrance: described as ‘The Bravest Little Street in England’ by King George V, after so many volunteered to serve.

Aviation and travel is hugely important to the UK. After an extremely difficult year, these sectors are now in real need of clarity and certainty on a roadmap to a safe return.

Today I voted against the extension of emergency powers under the Coronavirus Act until October. A year on we now risk normalising extreme policy responses and an attitude that our fundamental liberties exist for authorities to either grant or withhold.

🗣️ @cambridgeunion students agree with me that lockdown is a mistake:

During lockdown 👇

❌ Child abuse referrals up 43%
❌ Long-term harm on all children

Essential we get children back to school as quickly as we can #road2recovery

Today I voiced my concerns about this latest lockdown to the Prime Minister, urging him to allow parliamentary approval for each month that the government want the lockdown to be in place.

Tonight I am voting against new Coronavirus tier restrictions. In the absence of a cost benefit analysis of lockdown, clarity about Trafford's allocation to - and exit from - Tier 3 and sufficient justification for removal of fundamental freedoms, I have no choice but to oppose.

In response to the news we are returning to a tier system on 3rd Dec, I asked the PM & Secretary of State to publish both the assessment of the economic impact of these continued restrictions as well the criteria used to allocate tiers. #CovidRecoveryGroup

This afternoon - ahead of the vote on national lockdown - I took one final opportunity to stress the huge implications for our economy, our health and perhaps most importantly of all, our fundamental rights and freedoms.

In response to the latest lockdown announcement I have asked the PM to publish a full impact-assessment for the economy and physical/mental health. It is vital that we are fully informed about the impacts of another lockdown ahead of a vote on Wednesday.

Grateful to both Secretary of State @MattHancock and the Speaker. My amendment may not have been selected but my concerns – shared by colleagues and the public – have been heard: more Parliamentary involvement promised in decisions re Covid regulations going forward.” #Covid19UK

🚨To all the brilliant schools in our area: @oxschools The Oxford Union is offering free online debating workshops for students. Brilliant opportunity to learn some invaluable skills useful in all aspects of life: http://oxfordschools.net 📣

Delighted to share this letter after my media comments and questions to the Chancellor last week re @altrinchammkt - grants to small businesses not paying their business rates directly.

Big step in the right direction and shows Government is responding to feedback.

@SirGrahamBrady Thank you sir Graham today I also purchased Trafford sound and am relocating the equipment to my unit in Sale Square and renaming it hope radio I hope you will open the station when we go live

A special mention to @Bigcheesydj Rick Andrews and his volunteers running the ‘Local Bakers for our Heroes” who have been organising cake making for caregivers, residents and our emergency services. A huge thank you to everyone involved! #ThankYouThursday

Building on my article in @MailOnline at weekend, I directly asked the Chancellor to look for common sense opportunities to support local business when lifting restrictions:

▪️ Supporting open-air markets like @altrinchammkt
▪️ Flexible furlough scheme to allow partial returns

If you fancy getting creative and supporting our NHS

Pleasure to welcome Dr Xue Han from @OfficialUoM to Parliament yesterday. Dr Han's research into "MOFs" presents exciting prospects for capturing toxic pollutant NO2 from the atmosphere and converting it into useful chemicals - literally cleaning up our air 🌈#cleanair

Pleasure to welcome Business Minister @KwasiKwarteng to Ashton on Mersey alongside Conservative councillor candidate and local business owner Kay Dwyer where we spoke about the importance of small enterprise to the economy.

Yesterday I met with the Home Secretary along with other #GreaterManchester Conservative MPs to discuss policing issues and resourcing in our area 👮‍♀️

Delighted to be able to show support for the #HelpingBritainProsper campaign, helping to place apprentices like Ruby into small local businesses like @cunningplanfox , by donating unused Apprenticeship Levy Funds 💡

Happy to confirm that rumours of Altrincham Minor Injuries Unit closing down are untrue:

Head of MUNFT Sir Mike Deegan told me “we appreciate how important this service is to our local community and I can confirm that we have no plans to close the unit.” ✅#altrincham #NHS

Today I asked the Prime Minister if he will review the need for both the planned Golborne Spur and Davenport Green Station aspects of HS2 - a waste of money, nonsensical placement and damage to ancient woodland. Very pleased that he has confirmed he will. #HS2 👇

Meeting with Rachel Giles of @CheshireWT at ancient woodland in Davenport Green that would be destroyed if the current planned route for HS2 were to proceed ❌#HS2

Huge congratulations to Altrincham Interchange for winning the @OfficialTfGM award at Cheshire's Best Kept Stations 2019! Yet another recognition of the hard work that has gone into transforming Altrincham - well done to everyone concerned! #altrincham

https://www.bestkeptstations.org.uk/2019-winners/

Today James Grundy MP, @MrAndy_Carter and I wrote to the Sec of State for Transport to request the immediate scrapping of the ‘Golborne spur’ portion of HS2. Regardless of the Government’s decision on HS2, the Spur should be scrapped - it's costly, damaging and pointless. #HS2 👇

A privilege to chair the AGM of the wonderful @AltrinchamG Garrick Theatre and pay tribute to some of the fantastic volunteers who make it such a success🎭#Altrincham

Yesterday I met with the new GM group of Conservative MPs to discuss:

✅ Protecting the green belt
✅ Upgrading transport
✅ Improving policing in Greater Manchester

and many more issues we will work together on!

#GreaterManchester #GMSF

Don't forget to have your say today on the future of bus services in Manchester. My priorities:

🚌 Simpler, contactless, integrated fares across all modes of transport.

🚌 Bus services that are responsive to specific local needs.
