We need a new, long-term strategic plan to address the crisis in NHS Dentistry, whilst we could also take advantage of Brexit by exempting children's toothpaste & toothbrushes from VAT, thereby embedding good oral health at an early age. Read more here:
Today is #GlobalMNDAwarenessDay. A day to raise awareness of motor neurone disease around the world.
As an MP I will work to support people living with and affected by #MND and champion @mndcampaigns in Parliament.

It's terribly sad to learn of Bob Blizzard's passing. He was a formidable political opponent, a man who held passionate and strong beliefs and was a staunch advocate for Waveney. My condolences are with his family and loved ones.
It’s so refreshing to go on the radio with a Conservative MP and talk together about why cross-party working is important rather than take chunks out of each other with pre-prepared soundbites.
Lovely to be on @timesradio with my Tory mate @peter_aldous talking about fishing.
