Supporting Jobs and Businesses in Stourbridge

My priority for Stourbridge is jobs, investment, and upskilling.

Private sector innovation is the key to a strong economy and delivering prosperity for working people. Local businesses are important engines that drive economic growth and employ hundreds of local people. That is why it is important that the Government does it all can to foster a climate where businesses can thrive as we recover from the global pandemic.

I will always champion local businesses and investment in Stourbridge and work to ensure that local people have the skills they need to get well-paid jobs.

You can keep up to date on my visits to local businesses and my work championing investment and jobs in Parliament on this page.
