This region has tremendous potential that I pledge to unlock. We are ideally placed for green energy, for trade and transport links.

I live here, I know the people here. They work hard and want to see their communities thrive.

For too long this part of the country has been ignored and overlooked in government policy and funding decisions. I promise to change that as a new Labour MP in a Labour government.”
