North West Norfolk News
by James Wild MP

After six months of dutifully entering the ballot for Prime Minister’s Questions, this week I was finally successful. I used the opportunity to ask the PM about QEH - I called for it to be included in our hospital infrastructure plan.

The main event however was the Chancellor’s financial statement which set out more bold measures to protect, create, and support jobs. The Kickstart scheme will help young people by creating new jobs. A £1,000 job retention bonus will help firms bringing furloughed staff back. The £2 billion Green Homes Grant will help reduce emissions, cut energy bills, and support local jobs by funding insulation and other measures.

I was delighted with the cut in VAT to 5% for tourism and hospitality business. This is a move I called for earlier in the crisis and as the economy re-opens this should provide a welcome boost. The novel Eat Out to Help Out scheme is another creative attempt to support firms. 

Yesterday’s announcement that outdoors pools and performance arts can re-open from tomorrow; beauty salons, spas, tanning salons from 13 July; and indoor gyms, swimming pools and leisure centres from 25 July was very welcome. 

Today nominations open for #lovewestnorfolk heroes to recognise the individuals, groups, and organisations who have made a real difference in this crisis. Nominate someone on their website

Please do get in touch if I can be of assistance.

Best wishes,
