Sworn in and back to business
Labour’s Steve Reed this week headed back to Parliament following the General Election to be sworn in as Croydon North’s MP. Mr Reed has pledged to campaign for a fairer deal for Croydon North from the Tory Government.
In his first term, Steve led the campaign to tackle Croydon’s shortage of school places and to clean up Croydon’s streets left filthy after years of failed Tory-control of Croydon Council.
After being sworn in by the House of Commons’ speaker, John Bercow, Mr Reed said: “my number one priority is Croydon North. I’m back in Westminster now and I’m ready to fight Croydon’s corner whenever this Government think they can turn their back on us.”
Mr Reed continued, “I’m grateful to everyone in Croydon North who put their trust in me and I won’t let them down.”
Steve’s constituency office is now open as it was before the election and many residents have already been in touch asking Steve to take up local and national issues.
