a note from Tom...
This a place for me to share with you the work that I've been doing, both in our community and in Parliament.
Tonbridge and Malling is a beautiful part of Kent, rich in history and natural beauty, and I am incredibly proud to represent the people who live here.
As your MP, I have fought for you on issues that affect our community, including reducing aircraft noise, improving our train services, and boosting broadband and mobile phone signal in rural areas.
In Parliament, my role is to represent you and your views. As a Conservative, I work with the government to raise issues that matter to us, in Tonbridge and Malling, and since July 2017, I was elected by Parliament to chair the Foreign Affairs Committee.
I value the fact that I am able to have an open conversation with my constituents, so please do reach out and contact me if you have any questions or issues that you’d like my assistance with. I am always here to help you.

What's happening in Tonbridge and Malling?
TOugher sentences against child cruelty needed
Tony Hudgell, is a bright and happy 3-year old child from Kings Hill, with a deeply sad past. At just five weeks old he was abused by his parents. They received just 10 years in prison. That is why I have been working with the incredible Hudgell family to ask Parliament to change the law and raise the threshold for maximum sentences in future cases.
TONBRIDGE AND MALLING LOCAL PLAN
Until Monday 12 November, everyone who lives in Tonbridge and Malling borough has the chance to have their say on what is probably the most important council consultation in years, the draft Local Plan. Whether you agree with the proposals or not, now is our chance to make our voice heard.

I’m delighted that we’ve secured £2.3million of funding for improvements to the Leigh Flood Storage Area and also for local embankments in Hildenborough. This is excellent news for anyone affected by flooding in Leigh, Hildenborough or Tonbridge.
