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 in the European Parliament. I also serve on the Agriculture Committee and the Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs Committee.
