I’m sure that you would agree it’s been another busy week in parliament and, as you may expect, lots of constituents have been contacting me about what may happen during the next stage of coronavirus; and to tell me of their concerns and suggestions. I really do appreciate all of your calls, letters and emails.
To protect our NHS and the most vulnerable of our relatives and neighbours we must live for the next few months following a number of new restrictions. It won’t be easy but I’m certain that the people of Hinckley and Bosworth will once again collectively step up to the mark to keep each other safe, as we did in the Spring.
