I am delighted and humbled by the faith the people of Meriden have put in me to serve a fifth term. I would like to thank the volunteers, my staff, local councillors and all those who offered me their kind words, help and support; your contributions to the campaign made an overwhelming difference.
We can now celebrate our local and national victories, but not forget that we must hit the ground running as there is much work to be done here in the Meriden Constituency.
I would also like to thank my political opponents - you all fought passionate, clean campaigns and it was a delight to get to know you all.
I am very excited for the next five years - let's work together to protect and improve the Meriden Constituency.
