There is one issue that keeps cropping up on my visits around Walsall North: and it’s Brexit. There is much optimism from people I have met across Bloxwich and Willenhall. After all, the reason that the EU didn’t want the UK to leave shows how much leverage the UK has in negotiations.
This week’s column comes from Walsall as Parliament is in recess. But there is plenty to do and I will spend the next few weeks in Walsall North meeting residents, groups and businesses. And if my email inbox is anything to go by, there are plenty of issues to be helping with!
Residents have contacted both myself and local councillors about this issue and they are quite rightly very distressed by this ongoing and extremely frustrating problem. I am extremely sympathetic to the many concerns that have been raised and it is something that needs tackling head on.
As this is my first column I’d like to start by thanking you for electing me as the Member of Parliament for Walsall North. It is immensely humbling and it is an honour to be your voice in Parliament. Rest assured that no matter how you voted, I am here to work hard for you.
Eddie made his maiden speech to the House of Commons on the evening of Monday 3rd July. He thanked David Winnick for his service to Parliament and Walsall North and raised the importance of delivering Brexit for Walsall North. Here is the text of his speech:
