Protecting our unique landscape

During the last two years as the MP, Anne-Marie has:

  • Been an active member of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Bees – working with colleagues of all parties to protect our vital pollinators;
  • Been elected Vice Chair of the Forestry All-Party Group – encouraging Government to plant more trees;
  • Secured a commitment to 11 million more planted, supporter of huge Doddington forest planting in Northumberland;
  • Used her position on the Public Accounts Select Committee to promote the use of trees as a vital carbon capture device;
  • Persuaded the Secretary of State to ‘call-in’ the planning decision made by the previous Labour administration at Northumberland County Council to approve a new open cast coal mine at Druridge Bay which will harm the environment and tourism without providing more net jobs.
