“Reform UK priorities of Lower Taxes and Cheaper Energy will directly assist people with the cost of living crisis”
What do you see as the big concerns for the constituency and what issues do you hope to champion?
When I speak to people the two big concerns that keep coming up are housing and the cost of living. Reform UK priorities of Lower Taxes and Cheaper Energy will directly assist people with the cost of living crisis, and by implementing Net zero immigration we will reduce pressure on affordable housing and public services.
