It is a great honour to be appointed by the Prime Minster as Lord Chancellor and Secretary of State for Justice. We all know it is a difficult time for our nation and world, and I look forward to playing my part in ensuring that our United Kingdom has a strong Government that will stand up to the tyranny of Putin, tackle the cost-of-living crisis, improve our NHS and ensure that we build a more prosperous future for our children.
Whilst honoured by this position, I will continue my work for Great Yarmouth, advocating for more investment, and supporting the excellent Conservative Borough and County Councils, as seek to serve our communities. We have secured so much including funding for a new James Paget Hospital, the Third River Crossing and significant investments in our Town Centre, but there is more to do.
