West Cornwall MP Derek Thomas has urged the Government to accelerate environmental policies which will improve people’s health and wellbeing, calling for the establishment of a Nature Recovery Network.
Our planet matters. Today I asked Dr Thérèse Coffey, Environment Minister if she would meet with me to support a project to plant 20,000 trees with school children across West Cornwall by the end of 2020 to help address air quality.
I believe that we must show a commitment to families, make life easier for them where possible, and remove the unnecessary barriers and unintended consequences that Government policy is causing for our families.
As a member of the Work and Pensions Select Committee and through personal encounters with constituents, I have seen too many cases of obvious errors early on with PIP assessments that have led to unnecessary, and gruelling tribunals.
New proposals about the way OFSTED inspectors are assessed will help those schools and colleges which make an extra effort to help children with Special Educational Needs (SEN), says West Cornwall MP Derek Thomas.
