Chris White MP

MP for Warwick & Leamington

20 APR 2017

General Election

As I am sure you are aware, the Prime Minister announced on Tuesday her intention to hold a General Election on 8th June. This was confirmed yesterday with the passing of a motion by the House of Commons for the election to be held. I voted in favour of that motion and will be seeking re-adoption as the Conservative Party candidate for Warwick and Leamington.

I supported the call for an early election as the scale of change that the country now faces means it is right that the British people have their say in who governs the country.

For nearly seven years it has been a tremendous honour and privilege to represent this most wonderful constituency. Together we have made good progress with unemployment falling, businesses investing, impressive schools and colleges and a local hospital of which we can be very proud. The list goes on...

The economy has gone from strength to strength and there is much to be optimistic about, not least through the Government's Industrial Strategy which I have been closely involved with. Building on what has been achieved and approaching the Brexit negotiations with strong leadership must be the priority.

I am immensely proud to have served our local area and if I am given the opportunity to continue to do so, I will redouble my efforts to represent the residents of Warwick and Leamington both locally and nationally to the best of my ability.

As ever, I aim to be as accessible as possible and if you have any queries, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Best wishes,
