Scott believes that young people in North Cornwall should have access to training and education opportunities on their doorstep, and not have to leave our wonderful part of the world to attain qualifications.
Scott has consulted with local businesses and campaigned to reduce the bureaucracy and taxation with which small traders in particular are burdened. Scott shall continue this campaign, especially fighting for small businesses. The Conservative-led Government has delivered 3690 apprenticeships in North Cornwall, enabling young people to start a career.
Scott is an active campaigner for affordable housing for local people. Scott was disappointed that one of the first things the newly formed Liberal Democrat/Independent Cornwall Council did was to try to reduce the percentage of affordable housing being built on council and other public owned land. This would have directly affected the people of Cornwall making it difficult to find affordable housing.
This Conservative-led Government has made an £800 tax cut for 26,000 working people in North Cornwall.
Labour left a welfare system that disincentivised work and trapped people in poverty. The public lost trust in the system because it did not reward work and created a dependent culture. Whilst Labour remain the welfare party, Conservatives are bringing benefits under control.
Residents in North Cornwall have to travel considerable distances to access specialist NHS services. I shall campaign to get more frequent, local and specialised National Health clinics in North Cornwall.
I fully agree that as many services as possible should be provided locally. When elected I shall join my colleagues who want to expand the scope and responsibilities of the GP and community hospital services. I am determined that our excellent doctors, nurses, midwives, GPs and all other staff are given the support they need.
