MP Welcomes June 8th General Election

Tuesday 18th April 2017

Henry Bellingham MP for North West Norfolk said he warmly welcomes the General Election on June 8th.

Commenting Henry Bellingham MP said, “I do believe it is absolutely right for Theresa May to go to the country to secure a mandate for her post-Brexit Referendum negotiations. Without this mandate, her bargaining position with the EU would be that much weaker. Also, given that she took over from a Prime Minister who resigned a year after the start of the Parliament, she is entitled to seek her own mandate.

Henry Bellingham MP went on to say, “Brexit is obviously bound to have important consequences for business, agriculture, food production, the environment, and so many other areas in this constituency. Whilst I am personally convinced we can make a great success of Brexit, and whilst I am convinced it will be to the advantage of this constituency, it is imperative that we have a strong Prime Minister in place with her own mandate.”
