My motivation for being a Member of Parliament is that I love my country and want to serve it. It is a huge privilege to be able to represent my constituents in Parliament and I get an enormous amount of satisfaction from trying to solve the problems my constituents bring to me. It is also an honour to be able to campaign for improvements that will help the whole of South West Bedfordshire.

My Christian faith inspires me in much of what I do in Parliament. I campaign in Parliament on many different issues from human trafficking to the A5-M1 link (Dunstable Northern Bypass) and from climate change to the need for a community hospital in Leighton Buzzard. I have always had a passion for trying to strengthen families and prevent family breakdown and have helped set up a Community Family Trust which aims to give people skills and support to strengthen marriages and family relationships.
