Campaigns

Protecting Seasonal Agriculture workers

When George was Farming minister, he pressed very hard to try and secure a fully operational Seasonal Agriculture Workers scheme to allow our agricultural and horticultural industries access to the labour they need for harvest.

Improving dental services in Cornwall

George has been contacted by many constituents about the problems they are experiencing in accessing a good local NHS dental service. He is concerned by reports of constituents who are placed on waiting lists for large periods of time. 

Protecting our greenfield sites

George has always said that there should be a principle of building on brownfield sites before greenfield sites, especially around our towns. Developments should also be done with communities, not to them.

Keeping radiotherapy services in Cornwall

George has been contacted by many constituents about NHS England’s consultation on a new model for radiotherapy services in England. He is concerned about reports of people potentially having to travel outside of Cornwall for treatment.

Fairer funding for our local schools

George is committed to fairer funding for our local schools. He recently wrote to the Department for Education to discuss concerns that he had, and made specific proposals on criteria for the new national funding formula.
