In Swindon, my lobbying in Parliament has helped secure £16.5 million of improvements to M4 Junctions 15 and 16, which will be delivered over the next few years.

Defending our Nation

Britain’s defences are strong. Under this government we have chosen to use our hard-earned economic strength to support our armed forces and give them what they need to help keep Britain safe. Our investment is rising year-on-year to tackle the complex, diverse and multiple threats we face. The UK continues to spend the fifth-most on defence in the world, now surpassing France.

I have pushed to increase military spending in real terms and meet NATO’s target for 2% of GDP to be spent on defence. I have also helped to secure military equipment for our armed force.
