This is Alex, your candidate

And this is what he and Labour will do for Farnham & Bordon

FIX THE NHS SO PEOPLE GET THE APPOINTMENTS THEY NEED

  1. Pay NHS staff properly for overtime to bust the backlog and recruit 8,500 extra mental health professionals to drive down waiting lists.
  2. Deliver an extra 2 million operations, scans, and appointments in the first year of a Labour government to get patients diagnosed earlier.
  3. Implement a national Dentistry Rescue Plan with 700,000 extra appointments each year 
  4. Get the Bordon Health Hub opened as one of Labour’s new Neighbourhood Health Centres under one roof.

PROTECT OUR LOCAL ENVIRONMENT AND SWITCH ON GREAT BRITISH ENERGY

  1. Invest in home-grown renewable energy, using what Britain has in abundance: wind and water. 
  2. Introduce automatic and severe fines for polluting water companies and blocking bonuses until water bosses have cleaned up their filth. 
  3. Ban new onshore gas drilling licences - like those at Dunsfold. 
  4. Oppose the expansion of private jet flights at Farnborough Airport to preserve the peace and beauty of our rural constituency.

REBOOT OUR TOWN CENTRES AND GROW THE LOCAL ECONOMY

  1. Give our local communities a Community Right to Buy and councils new powers to get empty shops, pubs and community spaces back into use. 
  2. Scrap business rates and replace them with a system which doesn't punish bricks and mortar businesses.
  3. Reform planning rules and recruiting hundreds of extra planners to deliver the biggest boost to affordable housing in a generation while also enhancing local communities' power and voice over how housing is built to best service local people.
  4. Open a new generation of Technical Excellence Colleges, offering people in Farnham and Bordon more high quality apprenticeships and training opportunities tailored to local jobs.
  5. Introducing a new deal for working people and delivering a genuine living wage, banning zero hours contracts and ending fire and rehire. Creating well-paid jobs across all parts of our community will make working people better off and more secure.

INVEST IN YOUNG PEOPLE

  1. Recruit 6,500 more teachers and employ mental health support staff in every school to boost the wellbeing of young people.
  2. Deliver free breakfast clubs in every primary school in Farnham and Bordon so that no child starts the day hungry.
  3. Open new Youth Futures hubs to bring local services together and support teenagers at risk of being drawn into crime or facing mental health challenges.
  4. Develop a curriculum that helps students develop creativity, digital and speaking skills. Alex will organise an annual FAB Debating Cup and run public speaking workshops in every primary and secondary school in our new constituency.

MAKE OUR STREETS SAFE AGAIN

  1. Guaranteed town centre patrols by putting 13,000 more neighbourhood police and PCSOs on the beat. Every community in Farnham and Bordon will have a named officer.
  2. Tackle shoplifting gangs by ending the “£200 rule” which stops thefts under £200 being investigated - even if the same gang comes back time and again.
  3. Crack down on anti-social behaviour through tough new Respect Orders with criminal sanctions for persistent anti-social behaviour
  4. Fast-Track the recruitment of specialist detectives to increase the proportion of crimes solved with a dramatically larger pool of prosecutors to bring criminals to justice.
