A Queen's Speech for working people

Behind today's Queen’s Speech is a clear vision for a country that offers security and opportunity for everyone - at every stage of life.

Thank You From Rt Hon Cheryl Gillan MP

I am incredibly honoured to be re-elected as the MP for Chesham and Amersham for a sixth term, with an increased majority. May I send a huge thank you to everyone who voted and campaigned for me, fellow candidates and the Conservative Party over the last few weeks. For the next five years I will continue to work hard to serve the interests of all my constituents. I was very pleased to see so many Conservatives elected to Chiltern District Council as well as our Parish and Town Councils. We had a fantastic range of candidates for these elections, and I look forward to working with them as they serve our community over the coming years. My commiserations to the defeated candidates who also worked hard. The Conservative Party, now returned to Government with a clear majority in the House of Commons, has a golden opportunity to continue its work getting our country moving into the right direction. The Conservatives had not won a majority since 1992 - when I was first elected to Parliament. I look forward to the Prime Minister implementing our manifesto over the coming years which means the country will benefit from a clear economic plan: more jobs and apprenticeships, new businesses, the opportunity to redefine our relationship with the EU together with a referendum and good control of public spending. Over the course of the election campaign, I was able to meet and talk with a large number of constituents about the issues most important to them. HS2 remains a chief concern for people living in the Chilterns, and I continue to fight this flawed project, working to improve the environmental protection for the AONB as well as pursuing compensation issues for those directly affected by the proposals. Yours sincerely Rt Hon Cheryl Gillan, MP for Chesham and Amersham
