This has been another busy week for me in Parliament and I was able to ask the Prime Minister to reiterate his commitment to fire up the Midlands Engine and invest in our region as part of the levelling-up agenda. As I have said many times, funding for Broxtowe and the region is vital to my plan for the area and I welcome the Government’s continued commitment to deliver this.
October is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month and, throughout the month, I will ‘wear it pink’ to raise awareness for this important cause. Whether you are hosting a virtual coffee morning, afternoon tea or highlighting the signs of breast cancer and importance of being checked, we all have a vital part to play to ensure that patients can access life-changing support and care. I would thoroughly recommend looking at ‘Breast Cancer Now’ to find out more.
Tomorrow I will be visiting the Beeston Job Centre to hear about the changes they have made to support residents in Broxtowe and the challenges they are experiencing. It will be great to hear about the role they will play to encourage the Kickstart Scheme in Broxtowe which I hope will benefit many young people. I will share useful information with you next week and, if you do have questions about this policy, do let me know.
As ever, please continue to follow the Government’s guidance to stay safe and prevent the spread of the coronavirus.
