The coronavirus is having a huge impact around the world.  In our country, it's leading to measures which none of us imagined we would ever see, including orders for people to self-isolate, real concerns over the ability of our public services to cope, major impacts on local businesses, and emergency legislation.

As your MP, I am taking action in 3 main ways:

Holding the Government and the health authorities to account

I will continue to question Government ministers about their response to the epidemic and will keep you updated with what I am doing to follow up with the health authorities too. I am in touch with NHS leaders to try to ensure they have all they need and with healthcare workers who are on the frontline and require our support as a priority.

Economic impact for our city

Brighton and Hove’s economy is particularly reliant on sectors like tourism and hospitality, which are severely affected by the pandemic. I continue to work with businesses and local industry representatives to ensure Ministers know what is needed to protect the city’s economy, jobs and so many people’s livelihoods

Individual support and community resilience

The community reaction in Brighton and Hove has been brilliant throughout. If you need to contact me, details are here.
