Proud to serve the people of my town

- WILLIAM WRAGG Conservati­ve MP for Hazel Grove

ON May 7 I was given the greatest honour of my life, being elected to Parliament to serve the people of the Hazel Grove constituen­cy.

Since then it has been a steep learning curve as I begin get results for local people.

Already, I am working hard to deliver my election pledges.

I have asked the Education Secretary for fairer funding for local schools. I have raised issues of patient safety and mental health funding with the Health Secretary. And I have already told the Prime Minister at PMQs why we need the A6 to M60 bypass.

I used my maiden speech in the House of Commons to tell other MPs about our area and its history, and how I am proud to represent it.

That same week I introduced a private members bill which will enable the courts to find new evidence to help people who experience miscarriag­es of justice.

I have also been busy at home, visiting Greave school, attending Marple Carnival and helping residents at advice surgeries across the constituen­cy.

I am enjoying the challenge of being able to champion my home area in Parliament, and I’d like to thank all those supporters who have helped me get here.
