‘I’m still here for Welwyn Hatfield’ says MP Shapps

YOU don’t get rid of me that easily!

That was the message MP Grant Shapps delivered to his Welwyn Hatfield constituents after being named housing minister in David Cameron’s coalition government.

Mr Shapps was quick to dispel any fears anyone might have that working on national issues in government will affect his role representing the very people who voted him in to parliament.

“Expect to see no change of service,” he said. “Welwyn Hatfield is my number one priority. That’s the way I treated it in the last parliament, and that will not change.

“I’ll still be working on my constituents’ issues, and after the majority I got [nearly 17,500] I’ll be doubling my efforts.
