a note from Johnny

This week was dominated by the Tax Credit debate – Johnny urged the Chancellor, in public and in private, to do something to help mitigate the worst effects on our most vulnerable..
Johnny said: “It has been a demanding week in London with some long hours in the office and some difficult decisions in the House. The day was always going to come when I had to speak up against my party for Plymouth despite the personal discomfort, and I did so on Tuesday about Tax Credit’s. I will continue to represent the interests of our most vulnerable in these reforms, but there is an inarguable case for reform. This weekend I have five school visits, a surgery and I’m honoured to be asked to open two new businesses setting up in Plymouth – yet more indication of our economic revival in this great City. I hope to catch some time off to watch the rugby semi-finals, and as ever I’m looking forward to getting home to the girls. It’s been a privilege to represent you for another week.”

He also:

  • Met with the Minister for Policing as part of ongoing efforts to amend the Police Funding Formula in favour of Plymouth
  • Asked the Sec of State for Defence for an Audit of the Murrison report into Armed Forces Mental Health
  • Private dinner with the Chancellor in Number 11 to speak about Tax Credit reform in Plymouth
