Statement to voters

I am married with three grown up sons and have been a solicitor for almost 40 years.

I am also a qualified arbitrator and an internationally accredited mediator.

A Geordie forever and proud of it; I have been chairman of the Newcastle and North Northumberland RSPCA for over 30 years and a councillor for over 20 years;I live in in Whickham but am very happy to move to Jarrow when elected.

I offer to be an honest and hard working MP.

I will be totally accessible with regular open surgeries, regular newsletters, an open door and a telephone which is answered.
I believe in and will fight for the people of Jarrow constituency.

Your interests - and only yours - are mine and I will fight for them.
I want to reverse the education cuts currently inflicted on our schools and properly fund them.

I believe that Parliament should merely to fund schools leaving the educators to educate.

I want to guarantee pension incomes by sticking to the triple lock (introduced by the Liberal Democrats in Government) to guarantee annual increases in the state pension.

Liberal Democrats believe that everyone should have jobs, good health and the chance to choose who they love and how they live with a secure roof over their heads.

Important decisions should be taken by the people - like on the final Brexit deal - and not by the politicians.

I trust the people and I do not necessarily trust the politicians.
I believe in the people of Jarrow Constituency and offer them my hand to stand with them.

I want an open free tolerant Britain and I hope Jarrow wants that too.
