Fairer Funding for North Cornwall's Schools
Scott wants the Government to address the disparity between pupil funding in urban and rural schools.It remains the case that a school in one part of the country can receive over 50 per cent more funding than an identical school in another part of the country, and it is important to make schools and early education funding fairer.
Brexit for North Cornwall
In June 2016, the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union. 17.5 million people voted to leave - the biggest mandate for anything in British political history. Scott wants to see North Cornwall benefit from Brexit, especially its farming and fishing sectors, while continuing to receive regional funding
Save Public toilets
Public toilets are under threat of closure in Cornwall, and Scott wants to see them remain open through a change in finance and law. Like shops, public toilets are subject to Non-domestic rate payments, otherwise known as business rates. This, on top of maintenance costs and water bills, means they are not cheap for local authorities to run.
