Having had a life outside of politics, I understand that people want an MP who 'gets things done'. And let's face it - there's plenty that needs to be done in Hove and Portslade after four years of the Green Party running the council and a Conservative led government that has mismanaged our NHS.
We are ambitious in what we aim to achieve, whether that's having an effective recycling and refuse collection or transforming the King Alfred Leisure Centre into something local families can use and be proud of.
It's why I'm focusing on getting our school leavers into work or education, helping our local economy grow to create local jobs and sorting out the problems in our local housing.
All the best, Peter
Get Local Business Booming Again
I am designing local policies that will really help local enterprise and I am trying to reduce corporation tax for small business. I aim to see the business support team at the council strengthened and I want to solve the problem of parking for tradesman by creating discounted vouchers.
Backing the Next Generation
I am trying to end youth unemployment in Hove & Portslade while also providing more apprenticeships. A long period of unemployment for a young person can have a terrible impact on their ability to succeed later in life. It's important we do something about it.
Protect the NHS
Once the NHS is gone, we can't get it back. That is why I am fighting for 8,000 more doctors, 20,000 more nurses and 5,000 more midwives to safeguard its future. The NHS is safe with Labour.
Supporting Working Parents
Over the last Parliament the cost of childcare has soared by 33% nationally, while wages have largely remained static. I want to extend free childcare for working parents of three and four year olds from 15 to 25 hours, guarantee access to childcare for parents with primary age children through their local school, and deliver at least 50,000 more childcare places by doubling the number available at Sure Start centres.
Make the City a Fairer Place to Rent and Deal with the Housing Crisis
We will introduce long term tenancy agreements, stabilised rent increases, a crackdown on letting agency fees and better regulation of landlords. We'll also deal with the housing crisis by building 200,000 houses a year, nationally.
