Like the rest of the country - but even faster than the national average - Wiltshire’s population is ageing. We urgently need to make life better for young people so they want to live, work and bring up their own families here.
Everyone relies on the NHS and it is rightly the Government’s biggest priority after delivering Brexit. Record investment is now pouring in - but more must be done to make sure the money reaches the front-line here in Wiltshire.
Ours is an overwhelmingly rural constituency. To preserve Wiltshire’s glorious natural landscape - the famous chalk downlands, the prehistoric monuments, Savernake Forest and Salisbury Plain - we need to support the businesses and property owners who manage it.
