Nick Boles MP and I have worked together for 6 1/2 years and he was an outstanding Minister. He is now off work struggling to overcome a serious brain tumour. I wish him well. Our trip earlier this year saw us plant a tree, discuss the huge progress MP being made in FE and with UTCs and then on to the Kirkley zoo and the lemurs. His illness, and its unfairness has affected a lot of people in Westminster. And it puts everything else into context.
