Labour is in strong opposition to the Conservatives in Devon, leaving the other opposition parties far behind in battleground constituencies
Devon is a beautiful and resilient place. I love knocking on doors with Labour, as it involves meeting so many people and hearing about how they live and what’s important. It means helping people when their carer hasn't turned up or when they need help finding services. To be fair, even local Conservatives are sick of this government’s sticking plaster policies, and would like to do more.
Labour has the best offer for rural, small-town and coastal Devon, backed by services and investment for young people, families and the elderly alike. I want our constituents to return to and improve upon the amenity of better times, with transport, communications, schools, health services, social care and small business support.
Labour's fully funded Children's Recovery Plan would provide breakfast clubs and after school clubs, saving working parents on weekly childcare costs and delivering catch-up small group tutoring, play and enrichment to students.
We will build genuinely affordable and social homes so our young people can live here on local wages. We will tackle low wages and end insecure employment.
Labour's Climate Investment Pledge will focus on green technology, including offshore wind.
Devon residents want value for community, heritage and environment, as well as value for money. Labour is the best choice to represent residents of Devon.
