Truro and Falmouth Labour Party announce Parliamentary Candidate for the General Election


Speaking to Labour members on Saturday at Carnon Downs Village Hall Jayne said  "Cornwall is a fantastic place to live, but there are real issues here. Low wages, a lack of housing people can afford to buy or rent and few council or social houses being built. There is underfunding of the NHS and social care.  There are threats to our local hospitals, not least beds at Treliske, and the very existence of Falmouth Hospital. We see cuts to our school budgets resulting in fewer teachers and assistants and we are suffering the loss of EU funding to stimulate our economy."
Jayne lives in Falmouth with her son and works in a local school. Prior to moving to Falmouth she worked as a lawyer where her job was to advise and help people who had been injured at work or had employment law claims.  

A Falmouth resident for more than 11 years she has also used her legal skills with Falmouth Citizens' Advice Bureau helping local people with similar issues. 

Constituency Chair Candy Atherton said "We are delighted that Jayne has been selected as our candidate.  She will be an outstanding champion for our community.  I urge people not to waste their vote on minority parties such as the Lib Dems or Greens.  Only Labour can beat the Tories in Westminster.  Don't let the Lib Dems get back into bed with the Tories.  I urge people to vote for Jayne and Labour at the General Election"
