Nationally our MPs are doing what they can to support and ensure the prime concern of government is to keep citizens safe. That means constructive scrutiny of decisions and support for necessary actions. The best decisions are ones that have been looked at from all angles, communicated clearly, and implemented well in a timely fashion.

    Those who have put their lives at risk for our country are welcome to live in it.

    Like the rest of our wonderful NHS and care staff, hundreds of thousands of people from other countries are on the frontlines of the coronavirus pandemic, putting themselves in harm's way to make sure we get the care we need.
