As you may be aware, on Friday I submitted my resignation as Minister of State for Transport and Minister for London to the Prime Minister.
I am deeply proud and honoured to serve Orpington and my commitment to my responsibilities as your Member of Parliament is paramount. I have reflected hard on conversations I have had with constituents over recent months. I am aware of the strength of local opposition to the Chequers proposals and the Government’s approach towards leaving the European Union.
I am looking forward to serving the needs of Orpington residents to the very best of my ability from the Backbenches.
