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.
solutions to operation stack
In the past, I have attended numerous meetings trying to find a solution to Operation Stack. Unfortunately, we have not yet produced the answer that we need. Now, with the need for a new plan even more pressing than before, Highways England have launched a consultation to help find a new solution that will work for everyone.

West Malling Group Practice have confirmed they have sold the site at Milverton, West Malling, and have agreed a deal to lease back the whole site so ‘face to face appointments for patients will remain at the West Malling site for many years to come.
