HousePoint: February 2014

The first thing to say about the New Year is that on the economic front it has the prospect of being a happy one. At the start of 2013 I told The Herald that my twelve month objective was to see more people in work in Tamworth. Our latest unemployment figures do not disappoint. JSA claimants in T...

HousePoint: August 2012

Although you would hardly believe it judging by the weather, summer is now here and the House of Commons is in recess for August.

The last few months have been very busy in Tamworth and Westminster.

It has been a busy start to spring at Westminster.
