Local business urges MPs to back the PM's Brexit Deal

I am receiving many representations from local businesses urging me to back the Brexit deal. I set out below one such letter that is indicative of how strongly local businesses feel about this matter.

Dear Gary,

PPI News

Thank you to all 450+ of you who have e-mailed me about Brexit in the past 2 months. This means of course that roughly 99.3% have not contacted me, but I recognise that they expressed their view in the ballot box on June 2016. I intend to honour that decision. 

School Days

Last Friday I spent most of the day in three local schools.

First thing, I received my annual grilling from the Sixth Form at Ivybridge Community College. I'm always incredibly impressed by the breadth and depth of their questions - they certainly keep me on my toes.

When I was first elected to parliament there were no mobile phones, no internet and no e-mails, no social media, no 24/7 rolling news media. Technology has changed and is changing the way we live.

Celebrating 60 Years of Barratt Homes in the South West

The MP for South West Devon joined Barratt Homes at its Lucerne Fields development in Ivybridge to celebrate the five-star housebuilder’s 60th anniversary. On his visit Gary Streeter MP marked the anniversary by laying a commemorative stone.

Visit to Longcause School

Last Friday I had the privilege to visit Longcause School in Plympton and to meet with Headteacher, Anne Thorne. This local school serves children and young people from across the Plymouth area who have special educational needs, particularly those on the autism spectrum.

Within a couple of weeks or so, Parliament will have to make a final decision on the results of the Brexit negotiations. The two years notice to quit expires on 29th March 2019 so that unless something else happens, we will be leaving the EU then.

This week is Parliament Week

All across the Country, MPs, Councillors, schools and community groups are promoting Parliament Week.

Video from launch of Thales UK Maritime Centre in Plymstock

A few weeks ago I wrote about the opening of the new Thales UK Marine Autonomy Centre at Turnchapel Wharf.

They've since produced a video from the opening which you might like to watch to find out more about this exciting opportunity for growth and development in Plymouth.

This year will be the 25th year I have stood on the Hoe to commemorate the sacrifice of our armed forces from the two world wars of the last century. Does it become routine, after all of those years, just another duty? Not at all, if anything more poignant the older I get.
