I am delighted the Boundary Commission has listened to the residents of South West Holderness by deciding that the area will remain part of the constituency of Beverley and Holderness. Given South West Holderness’ predominantly rural nature, it is much better served by a constituency of similar character and I am pleased that the Boundary Commission’s recent proposals reflect this.
However, I am sad that towns and villages including Hornsea, Mappleton and Sigglesthorne will no longer be part of the constituency of Beverley and Holderness. They are great places which I have visited many times for street surgeries and events, and I have been proud to represent the residents there for over seventeen years. I would like to reassure people living in these areas I will continue to work hard as their Member of Parliament until the next election and they can continue to contact me if they have any issues they would like me to help them resolve.
I am always proud to represent Beverley and Holderness and, if I am fortunate enough to be re-elected by my constituents at the next election, I will continue to work hard for them both locally and in Parliament.
