Mims Davies welcomes a Ministerial visit from the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, the Rt Hon Iain Duncan Smith MP.Eastleigh College had an important visit from the Rt Hon Iain Duncan Smith on Thursday 11 December 2014. “It was excellent to see the Secretary of State for Work and Pensions speaking with students and apprentices regarding the innovative training they are receiving", says Mims Davies. She continued “The evidence of the training the college staff are giving NEETs, the unemployed, trainees and apprentices will increase their job prospects for any employer looking for the skills they have acquired. This college actively works with the Eastleigh Business community and their outcomes are simply incredible with over 25,000 learners in the last year with over 6,000 learners in the workplace achieving a 93.6% success rate". 


This week the Chancellor delivered his Autumn Statement which showed that the UK is the fastest-growing major economy in the world and which reported higher growth, lower unemployment, falling inflation and a falling deficit. Mims says,"The Autumn Statement shows our long-term economic plan is working and we are on course to prosperity – with higher growth, lower unemployment, low inflation, and a falling deficit." But the job isn’t done, and Britain now faces a choice. We could either squander our economic security by going back to the disastrous spending, borrowing and taxes that got us into a mess in the first place, or we can stay on the course to prosperity. We are not returning to the same failed ideas of the past – we will continue to work through our long-term economic plan that’s securing a better future for our economy, for our country and for hardworking taxpayers.


Mims Davies says "this is fantastic news and is a great opportunity for our workforce in Eastleigh and this shows that our area has some of the most impressive companies in our area". The award of £1.125 million to the Fianium Laser Factory in Hamble has been well invested.

The Eastleigh Conservative candidate for the 2015 general election, Mims Davies, has kicked off her campaign with a swipe at Eastleigh’s Liberal Democrat administration, describing MP Mike Thornton as “no great shakes” and Council Leader Keith House as “incredibly complacent” accusing them of  “taking voters for granted.”In an interview Davies told Eastleigh News she thought that under the Lib Dems Eastleigh Borough Council had overextended itself in building a property portfolio and that the council could soon be forced to start selling assets, including council owned land to developers, in order to service its debts.
