Protecting the NHS

I am absolutely committed to ensuring our NHS remains free at the point of use. I know how important the NHS is to families in Reading because it is just as important to me and my family.I have always supported and promoted the great work that NHS doctors and nurses do.

Building a Strong Local Economy

Since 2010 the Government has put in place a responsible, long-term economic plan to turn our economy around and put it on a more sustainable and resilient footing in future. There is more to do, but the latest figures show that the plan is working.

Excellent education for every child

Transforming education has been among the greatest successes of the Conservative-led Government. Where teachers or parents are unhappy with the local education on offer for their children, or believe that it could be delivered differently and in a better way, this policy has given thousands of them the chance to make their dream a reality by opening new, ambitious schools in their local area that aim to deliver a better education for their children.

Investment in infrastructure

Infrastructure is one of the cornerstones of building a stronger economy. I am proud that I have secured over £1 billion in transport investment for Reading East since becoming your MP. Prime Minister David Cameron said on his recent visit that “Rob seems to have a magical effect on the Chancellor of the Exchequer in terms of getting things done for Reading.”
