At an event in Parliament on 7th May, Martin heard about new research from Versus Arthritis which shows that 43% of people with arthritis said they struggled with tasks at home for more than two years before finding out about equipment they were eligible for.
Yesterday I had a constructive meeting with four representatives of Network Rail, the Rail Minister, Andrew Jones, and an official from the Department for Transport to discuss the closure of Suggitt's Lane level crossing.
As I have been a Brexiteer for over 40 years, I sincerely regret that we did not leave the European Union on Friday 29th March. The Government promised the British people that we would leave the EU within two years of triggering Article 50, as is outlined in international law.
Today I handed over to the Rail Minister, Andrew Jones MP, a petition signed by over 4,000 local residents objecting to the closure of Suggitt's Lane level crossing by Network Rail. Thank you to DN35 Crime Watch for all of their efforts in collecting signatures.
