Sidcup Post Office

I am disappointed that the Sidcup Post Office temporary closed on 28th June following the resignation of the Postmaster and the withdrawal of the premises. I recognise the importance of Post Office services to Sidcup which is reflected in the number of people who used the branch.

Southeastern Trains

We rely on good train services into Central London to get us to and from work and around the capital.  I welcome the multi-million pound investment at London Bridge Station which will transform this key London interchange for journeys from Bexley Stations and provide a brand new concourse, due to open this summer.  But punctuality and overcrowding on key commuter services need to improve. 

Queen Mary's Hospital

My recent visit to Queen Mary’s Hospital showed the positive future for the hospital and the strengthening of the range of services provided from Sidcup.

Supporting local businesses

I’m pleased to have supported many new local businesses which are creating jobs and boosting the local economy. Since 2010 we’ve seen unempliyment fall from 8% to 5%, with more people in work than ever before. In total, the number of people claiming unemployment benefit have fallen by a half.
