Rural Crime Investment

Representing a partly rural constituency in Parliament means taking an interest in agriculture. Of course, we should all recognise the significance of what our farmers do. They do not just produce the food we eat but also maintain the countryside we all enjoy.

Time:           5pm – 6:30pm

Location:     The Crown Inn, Crown St, Harbury, Leamington Spa, CV33 9HE


All constituents are welcome, no appointment is necessary.

Drop-in session at The Tiltyard on Tuesday.

Thank you to The Tiltyard for hosting it and I was delighted to congratulate AJ & the team on their charity work.

Submissions to the Oakervee Panel - Jeremy Wright MP

I have represented the constituency of Kenilworth and Southam since its creation in 2010, and the constituency of Rugby and Kenilworth, which included some of my current constituency, for 5 years before that. I have therefore represented areas affected by HS2 since it’s inception in 2009. Phase 1 of HS2 (London to Birmingham) on its current route enters my constituency in its south eastern corner and leaves it in its north western corner. HS2 has been the largest single constituency issue I have dealt with over that period.

Cubbington Woods Guided Walk and Picnic

Yesterday I took the opportunity to attend the Save Cubbington Woods guided walk and Picnic.

I will continue to engage with HS2 and the Secretary of State, seeking to ensure that irreversible damage is not done to our ancient woodlands until the Oakervee review is completed.
