In a modern, caring and dynamic society it is important that we support those who need help. However, begging and soliciting money in a threatening or intimidating way is becoming a major problem in Chelmsford city centre.
Chelmsford has outstanding schools, homes and shops, with culture and countryside on our doorsteps. We need infrastructure that is just as good. Before entering politics I led a team raising billions for infrastructure.
The Brexit negotiations will soon begin in earnest. As your MEP for the past eight years I know how vital the outcome is for our security, jobs and livelihoods, for those who work in Chelmsford and for those who commute to work elsewhere.
