Thank You

I would like to thank everyone in the Leeds Central constituency who voted for me as their Member of Parliament on 7th May.  It is an honour and a privilege to be your representative once again and I will do my best to repay your trust by listening and standing up for you.  I would also like to thank the wonderful team who supported me in the campaign and congratulate Adam Ogilvie, Asghar Khan, Patrick Davey, Gerry Harper and Judith Blake on their re-election as councillors.  

The full election result in the parliamentary constituency was as follows:

Hilary BENN                     24,758    Labour
Nicola FARIS-WILSON        7,791   Conservative
Michael HAYTON                3,558   Green
Liz KITCHING                      330      Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition
Luke SENIOR                      7,082    UK Independence Party (UKIP)
Emma SPRIGGS                  1,529    Liberal Democrat

              Electorate: 81,799  Turnout: 55.35%

I am sorry that we now have a Conservative Government but I will do my best to hold that Government to account and speak up for our city.

Finally, I am here to represent all of you, regardless of how you voted, so if you need my help then please contact me or come to see me at one of my advice surgeries.

Best wishes


Hilary Benn
MP for Leeds Central
