Protecting and Preserving our Environment for Generations to Come

As a keen conservationist, environmental issues are a priority of mine in Parliament and in West Oxfordshire.  One of the reasons West Oxfordshire is so special is the beautiful countryside which surrounds us and the diverse wildlife that inhabits it.

I am delighted that many of the issues I have campaigned on since entering Parliament are now being addressed by the Government.  These include action on plastics in our oceans, the introduction of CCTV in all slaughterhouses, and tougher punishment for those who commit acts of animal cruelty.  I will continue to work with local environmental groups and the Government to build on this progress.  Keep up to date with my latest work on this issue below.
