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.

Post Office in Bexley Village

I recognise the reliance people place on being able to access the services of the Post Office in Bexley Village – especially following the loss of Barclays Bank. I am therefore concerned over its temporary closure and the continued disruption and uncertainty this is causing to local residents.

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.
