Welcome to my latest e-newsletter. After another momentous month on the national political scene, here's my update on some of my recent activities in Cheadle and in Parliament.

Google Digital High Streets Tour

Having invited Google's 'Digital Garage' event to Cheadle as part of their high streets tour, I'm pleased to say it was a resounding success! The event is touring the country to impart digital wisdom to high street small businesses, and it was great to see small business owners from Cheadle benefiting from the training.

Billy's Lane Green Flag Award

I was delighted to be at Billy's Lane Allotments to raise the Green Flag and celebrate their well-deserved award! Receiving this prestigious award means that they have been rightly recognised as one of the best allotment sites in the country and a valuable community hub.

Bramhall Scarecrow Festival

It was a pleasure to once again be a judge at the Scarecrow Festival this year and to see the wonderfully weird and wacky array of characters gracing the streets and shops of Bramhall, some scarier than others, especially for MPs! Big thanks to Bramhall & Woodford Rotary for organising another fantastic festival and getting people supporting the village centre.

Better Support Needed for Flooding

Following the floods over summer, I have been making the case in Parliament for extended and better flood resilience schemes, and more support for homes and businesses to prepare for flood events. You can watch my question here ([link removed]) .

#MyTown Campaign

In my recent e-newsletter I was so pleased to be able to share the news that, following my representations to Government, Cheadle is one of 100 towns to benefit from up to £25 million of investment for innovative projects. We're awaiting the publication of a 'Towns Fund Prospectus' containing further details, but key to any decision on how to spend this money will be the input of local people and community groups. That's why the #MyTown campaign has been launched, and you can find out more here ([link removed]) .

Brexit - Last Week, This Week and Next...

Like the majority of the nation, I was hopeful that the first Saturday sitting of Parliament in more than three decades, organised specifically to come to a resolution on Brexit, would result in this being achieved. I am sorry to say I was wrong. In my view, it would have been more productive for MPs to take the opportunity to agree the Prime Minister's deal and move forward from there.

Unfortunately, Saturday's sitting led to even more confusion this week. I voted to take the Prime Minister's deal forward and was pleased that a majority of MPs did too. However, opposition MPs did not agree to the timetable which would have seen it passed into law in time for us to leave the EU on 31st October. In my view, having debated Brexit for more than three years and for over 500 hours, we were in the position to agree the deal and move the country forward.

So next week, the Prime Minister has offered more time to debate the legislation and get Brexit done. At the same time, Boris Johnson will again call for an early General Election and we expect to vote on this on Monday. If Jeremy Corbyn and opposition parties vote against this, it will be the third time they have refused a General Election, despite repeatedly calling for one. If Parliament won't let the Government govern, then it is only right to go back to people with a General Election.

My Views

In addition to regular casework correspondence, I receive a number of campaign emails and postcards each month regarding various topics. While I always prefer to get back to people directly in the first instance, each month I publish these views on my website. You can read these here ([link removed]) .

I hold regular surgeries both at my office in Cheadle Hulme and around the constituency. If you would like an appointment then please do get in touch via the details below and let me know the issues you'd like assistance with. It may be possible that I can help you right away.
Thank you for taking the time to read my latest e-newsletter. As ever, if there are any issues you'd like to raise with me then please do get in touch.

Best Wishes,
