He said £100bn will be spent each year for 10 years, "transforming the economy and jobs ready for a carbon-neutral future."

He added the Greens plan to scrap HS2 and use the money to invest in regional train lines.

Labour Party candidate Chris Peace said the party plans to "invest highly" in public services in North East Derbyshire.

She said Labour will create more public sector jobs, have a fully funded NHS and properly resource social care.

In addition to this she said there will be investment in youth services including a free bus pass for anyone under 25 years old and a £10 minimum wage.

Conservative Lee Rowley, who's been the area's MP since 2017, said: "Just in the last few weeks, we have been successful in that both Clay Cross and Staveley have secured town deals which could be worth up to £25m each to improve them further."

He said he has been helping to lead the Staveley bypass campaign and find a "proper solution" to reducing congestion on Derby Road.

"I am also fighting for further funds to upgrade the Royal Hospital at Calow," he added.
