Response from Jeremy Hunt

I have written to the final two in the Conservative Leadership Election to ask for their thoughts on the following questions:
- What plan have you got to ensure that we leave the European Union and enjoy a future relationship of trade and cooperation?
- How are you going to deliver the recommendations of the Committee on Climate Change (CCC) to achieve net zero emissions as soon as possible?
- What will you do to ensure that schools and colleges have the money they need to give our young people the best possible start?
- Will you set out a vision and commitment of Government for small businesses and entrepreneurs?
- What ideas have you got to ensure that people have access to good quality housing that they can afford?
- What do you intend to do to make sure that people feel safe and that police have the resources they need?
- Are you 100 percent committed to the funding of the NHS as promised by Theresa May and when will you set out your plans for funding social care for all?

I have attached Jeremy's response so that members can make an informed choice as to who they vote for because these things matter to West Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

There is no appetite for me to create further cost and disruption to small business.
