Mel has been one of the leading campaigners for more education funding for Devon for over a decade. Working alongside other MPs and campaigners he helped to secure significant increases in per pupil funding for schools in Devon for 2020-21 and 2021-22.
Central Devon has the third most post offices of any constituency in the UK and one of Mel's top priorities as an MP has been to keep them open and, where possible, increase their opening hours to help them stay viable.
For the last decade Mel has been one of the leading campaigners for the introduction of a regular passenger rail service between Okehampton and Exeter via Crediton, working closely with campaign group OkeRail.
