An important day to be in Parliament, with the Prime Minister making a Statement on the situation in Israel and Gaza, outlining both our support for Israel as well as enhanced humanitarian support to Gaza.
It was also great to be right behind the Secretary of State for Transport unveiling our huge £36 billion investment package following the re-profiling of HS2. The North East is the perfect example of a region that received smaller benefits from HS2 but will hugely benefit from the new funding under Network North, with specific projects on top of going further on East-West connectivity on our rail network as well billions more for pothole repair and improving road infrastructure across the board as well as the extension of my #GetAroundForTwoPound fare cap scheme
I have been elected to represent you in Westminster and it’s an honour to do it as a constituency MP, as your representative in Parliament and as a Minister in the Government. It is a real privilege to work on your behalf every day.
