Jones welcomes PM’s election call

AJ-HeadShouldersNews that the Prime Minister is to put a vote to the House of Commons calling for an election on 8 June has been welcomed by Harrogate and Knaresborough MP, Andrew Jones.

The vote which will be before the Commons tomorrow (19 April) and under the Fixed Term Parliament Acts requires a two-thirds majority of MPs to support it for Parliament to be dissolved.  The Labour Leader, Jeremy Corbyn, has already said he will back the proposal.

Mr Jones commented: “The past year has seen momentous changes in politics.  It has been a time of great uncertainty.  It is time for that uncertainty to end – the best way to do that is to secure a Parliamentary majority in an election where all parties can put their case to the electorate and the electorate can decide the future direction of our country.

“Locally, I confirm that I will be standing as the Conservative Party candidate.  I love the area in which I live.  I enjoy taking up campaigns on behalf of local people and dealing with issues on behalf of constituents.  I hope that residents feel I have given a level of service to them that is worthy of their support.

“Between now and 8 June I will be putting that record in front of constituents and asking them to back me once again.”
