It is great to be part of the 'Levelling Up Taskforce' in Parliament.
This group of more than 40 Conservatives MPs and I will be pressing the Government to ensure that the country's most 'left behind' places are at the top of the agenda.
That's my task for you and all in Stoke-on-Trent North, Kidsgrove & Talke. Let's level up our city.
It won't be easy and it is not an overnight job to overturn decades of being forgotten about by all those in Westminster.
However, I will do everything I can to ensure our area and other left behind places are no longer forgotten about and we get the investment we need and deserve.
