    The Government has set a 20 year deadline for the full introduction of electric vehicles. In the meantime we will need a dramatic increase in the number of charging points.

    I have always had an interest in local affairs, having worked on a community newspaper for seven years.

    I currently volunteer with a witness support service and with a local refugee family and firmily believe that Liberal Democrat values of respect and fairness for all are what best serve the community and the country as a whole.
