On Tuesday, His Majesty The King delivered the first King’s Speech in over seventy years. The speech outlined this Conservative Government’s legislative agenda for this session of parliament.

From cutting inflation, to growing the economy, to keeping people safe and promoting our national interests, the Government is on course to deliver on its promises for people in Wycombe and across […]

I know that the recreational use of nitrous oxide is of growing concern to many in Wycombe. Over the past few years, I have seen many photographs from concerned constituents of large piles of discarded canisters which have been found around parks, left in roadside verges, and collected during litter picks. Understanding the breadth of concern, I have long campaigned on this issue. In 2020, I was pleased to intervene in an Adjournment debate on the Misuse of Nitrous Oxide […]
Under this Conservative Government, overall crime in the UK excluding fraud has been falling for some time. However, and understandably so, many in Wycombe and across the UK continue to have concerns about crime and anti-social behaviour.

Yesterday the Prime Minister gave a statement to the House on the EU Council, Security and Middle East. I asked the following question; Steve Baker (Wycombe) (Con): I was appalled to learn that the British terrorist interviewed on “Newsnight” came from Wycombe. Does my right hon. Friend agree that this man has disgracefully betrayed the community that I represent? Given what was said, can he reassure me that if that man presents in the UK, he will face the full force of the law? […]
Last week, the Home Secretary introduced a Modern Slavery Bill into Parliament. The Bill sets out to ensure that the law enforcement agencies have the tools they need to stamp out this abhorrent practice. The Modern Slavery Bill contains significant new measures to ensure that victims are better supported and protected, not only to recovery from their terrible ordeal, but also to support effective investigations and prosecutions. Specifically, the Bill will do this by: ensuring that victims are not prosecuted […]
There has been significant good news in the Thames Valley Police Area of which Wycombe is a part.

Anthony has explained to MPs that: In the last year overall crime has dropped by 10% in the TVP area, the second biggest drop in the country. Burglary has dropped by 20%. In Reading it has dropped by over 40%. Rural crime is now taken seriously […]
The Prime Minister’s statement on the attack in Woolwich may be found here. He opened his statement: What happened yesterday in Woolwich has sickened us all. On our televisions last night – and in our newspapers this morning – we have all seen images that are deeply shocking. The people who did this were trying to divide us. They should know: something like this will only bring us together and make us stronger. Today our thoughts are with the victim […]
