MY PLAN to secure a better future for Derby South
For more police on our streets
Because of Boris Johnson’s plan to boost police numbers by 20,000 over 3 years, Derbyshire Police will be able to recruit over 100 more officers – including 85 more officers in the first year alone – making our streets safer and cracking down on crime and anti-social behaviour.
For tougher sentences for criminals
The Conservatives will bring in tougher sentences for criminals by banning automatic early release for the most serious violent and sexual offenders at the half-way point of their sentence. It is vital that justice is done and that the public is protected.
For a boost to school funding
The Conservatives will increase funding for our primary and secondary schools by £2.6bn nationally, benefitting 500 primary schools and half of the secondary schools in the East Midlands.
To put a stop to unsuitable developments
Our outdated planning laws will be replaced under the Conservatives to ensure that more homes are built in places that people want to live, but that they also make our neighbourhoods more beautiful and pleasant to live in.
For investment in industry and jobs
Boris Johnson has promised £1bn for the car industry to help it to invest in researching and developing the next generation of electric vehicles, and to create new jobs.
Derby and its people have been at the forefront of industrial innovation for over three hundred years. With Infinity Park and industrial giants like Rolls-Royce, Toyota, Bombardier and JCB on our doorstep, this investment would supercharge the local economy and keep Derby at the heart of the British car manufacturing industry.
To get Brexit done
17.4 million people voted to leave the EU in the 2016 referendum - the biggest act of democracy in our nation’s history. Only the Conservatives will honour the referendum result, get Brexit done, restore faith in democracy, reinstate trust in politics and put an end to the deadlock so that we can get on to the country’s other priorities.
