Mobile Data Roaming

Mr Helmer, many millions of people from across your region and my region use their phones. I do not want to push up their domestic prices, but I do want to them to be able to use their phones affordably when they travel across Europe. This is why, in the two years of negotiations, we have put in place a safeguard through the review of wholesale caps so that domestic prices will not be put up.

My Political Priorities

Economic Stability must come first. Without a strong economy we can not deliver a strong society. I work with businesses and consumers to keep Britain open for business, cutting red tape, boosting trade opportunities and helping to deliver jobs and growth for all.

I support Science and Research which is key to delivering better medical care and improved lifestyles for all our families.

Strong security is vital in today's uncertain world, which requires robust policing and defence and deep international relationships that we can depend on. I work with others to achieve this.

I care about the Countryside and the Environment and making sure that rural and urban communities flourish.
