General Election called for 8th June 2017

Comment from Philip Dunne MP

“The Prime Minister has decided to call a General Election on 8th June, to ask the public to back the strong and stable leadership needed to see us through Brexit and beyond. As Theresa May made clear this morning, the Government’s small majority risks weakening our hand in Brexit negotiations. Parliament must consent, but her reasoning is clear.

I will be supporting a vote for a General Election when this comes before Parliament tomorrow. If successful, I will be out across South Shropshire, asking voters to place their trust in me, and vote for the strong Conservative government the country needs.”
