Annette in Westminster

In 2011 I celebrated 10 years in Parliament and I'd like to thank all those who have supported me during that time. I have lived in the area for over 35 years and brought up my family here, and I care deeply about local issues. I promise to do all I can to work for, and with, all the people who live in this area.

On this site you can find details of my recent activities in the constituency and in Westminster, the campaigns I am involved in and speeches I have made. I hope that you will feel connected to the work I do supporting constituents and local causes. If you have any comments, do not hesitate to contact me.

I would be happy to hear from you.
