In the House of Commons, Neil pressed the Secretary of State for Environment Food and Rural Affairs on simplifying environmental schemes post-Brexit. Neil supports a 'Green Brexit' where farmers are rewarded for enhancing our natural environment, through agri-environmental schemes.
Neil asked Treasury Minister's about merging Income Tax and National Insurance into a single income tax. Since receipts from both taxes go into the same general pot, Neil advocated gradually merging the two taxes to make the tax system simpler and clearer.
Neil asked what steps the Government is taking to help grammar schools expand. Colyton Grammar School in his constituency is one of the best performing schools in the country - state or private - and wants to take on more pupils.
