MEET YOUR NEW MPs!

Harefield Gazette - - PROPERTY -

John McDon­nell was elected Labour MP for Hayes & Har­ling­ton on May 7th. John has lived lo­cally for over 40 years and served as the MP and as the lo­cal GLC coun­cil­lor. He was first elected MP in 1997 and has founded nu­mer­ous lo­cal com­mu­nity or­gan­i­sa­tions. John is Chair of the So­cial­ist Cam­paign Group and strongly op­posed to Heathrow ex­pan­sion.

The new gov­ern­ment and all politi­cians should recog­nise the size and strength of this feel­ing and al­low Heathrow to grow and suc­ceed. It’s what the ma­jor­ity of lo­cal peo­ple want.

Pop­u­lus in­ter­viewed at least 1,000 res­i­dents (18+) in ten con­stituen­cies lo­cal to Heathrow Air­port by tele­phone be­tween 19 Novem­ber and 21 De­cem­ber 2014. In to­tal, 10,006 res­i­dents were in­ter­viewed. Re­sults were weighted to be de­mo­graph­i­cally rep­re­sen­ta­tive of all adults in each con­stituency, and were also weighted by past vote to be po­lit­i­cally rep­re­sen­ta­tive of all adults. With the elec­tion of a new gov­ern­ment our lo­cal MPs will be in a po­si­tion to help de­cide on whether or not to im­ple­ment the Air­ports Com­mis­sion re­port on ex­pan­sion at Heathrow or Gatwick. Make sure they know your views on jobs and growth at Heathrow, write to them at the House of Com­mons, Lon­don SW1A 0AA. Boris John­son was elected Con­ser­va­tive MP for Uxbridge and South Ruis­lip on May 7th. Pre­vi­ously he was MP for Hen­ley be­tween 2001 and 2008 and is Mayor of Lon­don hav­ing been first elected in 2008. As an MP he served as Shadow Min­is­ter for Cul­ture, Com­mu­ni­ca­tions and Cre­ative In­dus­tries and for Higher Ed­u­ca­tion. Boris has var­i­ously sup­ported the clo­sure of Heathrow and its re­duc­tion in size. Nick Hurd was elected Con­ser­va­tive MP for Ruis­lip, North­wood and Pinner on May 7th. He was first elected in 2005, and is the fourth suc­ces­sive gen­er­a­tion of his fam­ily to serve as an MP. In Par­lia­ment his fo­cus has been on so­cial pol­icy and the need for stronger com­mu­ni­ties. He was Min­is­ter for Civil So­ci­ety and served as a mem­ber of the En­vi­ron­men­tal Au­dit Se­lect Com­mit­tee. Nick be­lieves that peo­ple want a bet­ter Heathrow not a big­ger one.
