Yesterday, I addressed the Molesey & District Antiques Society after their tour of Parliament. The Society organise social events throughout the year, as well as visits to interesting venues across the country. I spoke to the group about the three key roles of a MP – helping people with individual problems, championing the interests of the constituency as a whole, and scrutinising UK laws as their elected representative in Parliament. I took a range of questions including on what it is like working in Westminster, why I decided to become an MP, whether we need to raise taxes, and local GP services.
My thanks go to Chris Florence for organising the trip and making the time for me to meet this very interesting local group. You can read more about the Molesey & District Antiques Society here.
