At the start of June I did another Personally Speaking article about how Silicon Stoke, which I spoke about during the general election campaign last year, and Free Trade Deals can ensure an economic recovery post COVID-19 for Stoke-on-Trent, Kidsgrove and Talke.
People have contacted me regarding a vote during the opposition day debate, brought by the Labour Party, on NHS weekly testing. As is the nature of Opposition Day Motions, it was designed as a party political stunt to grab headlines.
Today in Business Questions to the Leader of the House of Commons, Jacob Rees-Mogg, I asked if there could be parliamentary time secured for a debate about protecting our heritages assets and tougher punishments against those who have allowed them to rot.
It was great to chat with the Minister for Digital Infrastructure, Matt Warman Mp, alongside Leader of Stoke-on-Trent City Council, Cllr Abi Brown, about why Stoke-on-Trent, Kidsgrove and Talke should be the centre of a digital levelling up agenda.
