Statement by Rt Hon Alec Shelbrooke M.P. (Friday 13th December 2020).
“It is overwhelming to have received the support of so many constituents in the General Election – especially to have secured a majority of vote in every polling district – and it is humbling to be re-elected to represent my home constituency in the House of Commons.
Whether you cast your vote for me or not, I will now get back to work speaking up for our area and supporting the Government to get Brexit done and then focus on the country’s priorities: investing in our NHS, schools and police”.
