  • Nigel's Income Tax Cut Backed By PM

    I’d like to thank all my constituents who have supported my petition to increase the Personal Allowance in to the level of the Minimum Wage to £12,000 or above so that the people earning the minimum wage would not pay any Income Tax.
    The PM has pledged that a future Conservative Government would increase the allowance to £12,500.

  • EU Referendum Result

    As many of you will know, earlier this year I invited you, my constituents, to take part in an EU referendum ballot. I know from speaking with many of you on the doorstep that many of you have concerns about our current membership of the EU – concerns I share.

  • Heanor Hospital Campaign Success

    Many of you will be aware that I started a campaign to reopen the Heanor Memorial Hospital, which was closed due to the finding of asbestos in the building.
    I submitted over 4,000 constituents' signatures to Parliament, and since then, we've seen the CCG commit to rebuilding the hospital and enhancing services in the town.

  • Unemployment Halved Since Election

    I’m so pleased to report that the number of people claiming Job Seekers’ Allowance in Amber Valley is now 2.1%, compared to 4.9% at the time of the election. That means that over 1,200 of my constituents are now off benefits, in work or starting their own businesses as a result of the difficult decisions that we have taken, and in turn, the recovery of the local and national economy.

Petrol Prices

I’ve campaigned in Parliament to keep fuel duty at the lowest possible level, and we’ve already gone far on this by avoiding 20p per litre of Labour’s planned fuel duty hikes as set out in their fuel duty escalator – this saves my constituents £11 each time they fill up.

The Chancellor has also committed to avoiding any further rises providing he can find the money. To further my efforts to help my constituents save money on their petrol bills, I provide [...]

My Pledges

As a Conservative, I believe that hard-working people should be rewarded; we should live in a society that is not a free-for-all, but one that provides opportunities for all.

We’ve done so much already nationally and locally with the deficit, employment, inflation, immigration, cost of living, taxation, crime, education, healthcare and the European Union. We need to safeguard and build on these achievements.

Here are my pledges to you if you return me to Parliament at the next election:

If you want to [...]

Heanor Memorial Hospital

Heanor Memorial Hospital closed due to finding asbestos in the building earlier this year. I, like many of my constituents, had grave concerns about the future of health services in Heanor and so I launched a petition to see the site rebuilt and health services enhanced, not diminished, in the town. The petition was signed by over 4,000 constituents and I presented it to Parliament in March (below).

I, like many Heanor residents, have worked hard on this issue, and I [...]
