Ed Vaizey Parish News May 2015

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who voted to re-elect me MP for the Wantage and Didcot constituency in the recent General Election.  I cannot tell you how thrilled and honoured I feel to have been returned with an increased majority, and I will do everything in my power to repay the faith you have shown in me.  It goes without saying that I will work for everyone who lives in the constituency regardless of how they voted.

The main issues I came across while out canvassing and at the many hustings I attended relate to concerns over housing developments.  It is inevitable that we will get additional houses, I have always been very honest about this, but it is crucial that we get the relevant infrastructure to support development.  I will try to ensure that this is delivered in full and on schedule by the council and developers.  Other related issues that I shall be looking into are the provision of local Primary School places and concerns over GP services.

I am also delighted to have been given the opportunity to resume my Ministerial roles at the Department of Culture Media and Sport and at the Department of Business Innovation and Skills.  These are portfolios I particularly enjoy and aspects such as the roll out of broadband expansion are extremely important to many of my constituents, particularly those who live in the villages.

Congratulations are also due to all the newly elected District, Town and Parish Councillors – I look forward to working with those in the Wantage and Didcot constituency.  My thanks also to all the Councillors who either chose not to stand again or were unsuccessful at these elections, for the work they have done for their communities over the past years.  It is much appreciated.

Please feel free to contact me if you have any pressing issues that you would like help with.  Either myself or one of my fantastic team will get back to you as soon as possible and do what we can to assist. You can contact me on any matter at the House of Commons, SW1A 0AA, 020 7219 6350 or atkinsl@parliament.uk.  Email is the quickest and most reliable way to get in touch, as I keep a very close eye on my emails and can reply very quickly.   I also send out occasional general interest emails about developments in the Wantage and Didcot Constituency. If you would like to be added to the distribution list, please do email me at badyaljb@parliament.uk or sign up at www.vaizey.com.
