Member of Parliament for Richmond (Yorks)I grew up watching my parents serve our local community with dedication. My dad is a NHS family GP and my mum ran her own local chemist shop. As an MP, I want to make that same positive difference to people here and I now live in Kirby Sigston, just outside Northallerton.
