Welcome to my website.
I am honoured to have been elected to represent the people of the West Midlands Region in the European Parliament. This site aims to tell you what I believe in, what I’m working on and how you can contact me.
I support the Conservative vision for Europe and I believe it is right for the British people to have a clear In/Out referendum following renegotiation of the terms of our membership of the EU. I know it is right for Britain to lead the efforts to curtail the EU's endless interference in areas that are better decided nationally. I also believe that, as Conservatives, we have the right answers to sort out the economic mess that the Labour government left behind and to oppose the left-ward drift in Europe.
I took my seat in December 2011 and am the Conservative Spokesman on Employment and Deputy Chief Whip of the Conservatives in the European Parliament. I also serve on the Agriculture Committee, the Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs Committee and the Special Committee on Organised Crime, Corruption and Money Laundering.

Anthea works on a wide range of issues that are important across the West Midlands. This section provides an introduction to them, explains the detail of why they are critical to the region and, most importantly, how Anthea is working hard to ensure the West Midlands benefits from Europe.
