    I’ve delivered on key pledges that I promised when I was seeking election. The deficit has been more than halved, crime is down by 21%, ...

  • 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 May 2010

    I’m so pleased to report that the number of people claiming Job Seekers’ Allowance in Amber Valley is now 1.9, compared to 4.9% at the time of the election in May 2010. 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 21p 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 [...]

I’ve delivered on key pledges that I promised. Unemployment has more than halved since I was first elected, health services are improving – not diminishing – in my constituency, crime has [...]

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 the pledges that I promised you should you, as you did, return me to Parliament in May [...]

Tax Campaign

20th May 2015

We’ve already made so much progress on the Personal Allowance in Income Tax, increasing it from £6,475 when we were elected, to £10,600 now. As a result of our efforts, 4,000 of my constituents have been taken out of Income Tax altogether, and we’ve delivered a £800 tax cut to 32,000 more.

But our plan is working – so we should, and can, go further.

As those of you who signed my petition to increase the Personal Allowance in Income Tax to [...]
