Win Scutt for South West Devon

If I am elected as your MP, I will stand for people and the planet, focusing on what matters to you. I will focus upon protecting local NHS services and securing a referendum on the outcome of the Brexit negotiations; ensuring a fair deal for all. I will ensure increased funding for education, for Devon’s schools, for science and for apprenticeships.

The Green Party has the expertise and commitment to influence sound and sustainable economics, social policy and security. The country is experiencing the worst ever NHS performance figures and so I will strive for increased funding for health services, especially mental health.

I shall stand up for a referendum on the terms negotiated for Brexit. If the terms are not good enough, we need to be able to say ‘no’ and find a fairer deal. We need to keep our options open to remain in the EU, to ensure that our children’s future is not jeopardised. I believe that the future of Britain is best served by close links with Europe.

I shall stand up for fair prices for our farmers, the future of our fisheries, for civil liberties and human rights, for people and our environment; providing balance to the power of corporations. I shall campaign against nuclear weapons and for doing our fair share for genuine refugees.

Having lived in the South West Devon for over 30 years, I am passionate about our landscape, our environment and our future. My career with English Heritage has involved me in caring for the past. Now let’s ensure a sustainable future.

WE WILL:

  • Keep our NHS services free and local hospitals open.
