Rob was born and brought up in south Oxfordshire before moving to Reading in 1984 as a student attending Reading University. He is married to Jane and they have four children and live locally in Reading .

Rob made his name as an entrepreneur, successfully building several small businesses. Before being elected MP for Reading East in 2005, he also served as a local councillor in Reading. He currently serves as Parliamentary Private Secretary (PPS) to the Chancellor of the Exchequer.

Rob has played a leading role in securing a number of major investments in the Reading East area, including the redevelopment of Reading Station and securing government backing for a direct rail link between Reading and Heathrow Airport. He has also led two successful bids for new schools in the area, including the landmark new University Technical College, which will equip local young people with the skills needed in the 21st century.

If re-elected next year, Rob will continue to champion efforts to expand opportunity and raise the quality of life for local people in east Reading. In particular, he intends to campaign for a third Thames Bridge crossing to reduce the chronic traffic problems affecting local residents and businesses. He will also fight to ensure that Reading’s needs are met by the planned extension of Crossrail.
