I am a campaigning MP who has successfully secured new laws to help victims of crime. I have also generated tax cuts, support for small businesses and new trade and investment opportunities. I have had an international career in the private sector and, while growing up, I supported my parents in the running of their small businesses. I am a strong believer in our political and economic freedoms which provide us all with the opportunities we need to succeed, no matter who we are and regardless of our background.
