The election in Wokingham

Yesterday saw  the last of the three meetings where all the Wokingham constituency candidates are invited to share a platform. We have now  held meetings at the Holt and the Methodist Church in Wokingham, and  at St Crispin’s School. Next week there is a Radio Berkshire debate.

I have visited most places in the constituency over the campaign, and have more visits planned for the final days.   On Thursday and  Friday I wish to visit the villages in the West , as well as revisiting Burghfield.

There has been considerable interest in the election, and most voters have wanted to talk to me about the national issues which the new Parliament will have to tackle. At the public meetings we have discussed the economy, the NHS, education, immigration, the EU, planning, housing, the relief of poverty, jobs, the deficit and votes for young people.

I remind people that I am happy to answer questions sent to the local issues pages of this website, and can do so by publishing question and answer here, or by sending a private reply to your email address if you supply it and ask that the question is not published.

    My concern is that most parties have worked hard to list a series of bids to up nhs spending, etc., but very few have explained about the cuts required to pay for that. Balancing the books is not going to be easy, and the vast majority understand that. Cuts are as much of a concern.
