Swindon’s two new Conservative MPs are this morning beginning their first full working week following their historic election victories last Thursday.
Robert Buckland and Justin Tomlinson will both be in London this afternoon for a meeting with fellow Conservative MPs. There will then be an intensive three days of preparations for the re-start of Parliament.
In Swindon, staff have been working over the weekend to establish a temporary constituency office which will begin operating this morning.
Peter Heaton-Jones, agent for the two MPs, said, “We’re determined to hit the ground running and want to make sure that residents who need to contact their new MPs can do so as easily as possible.
“We’ve set up a temporary constituency office for both Justin in North Swindon and Robert in South Swindon, starting this morning.
“In this short interim period, while we’re still setting up our offices and systems, we may not be able to deal with everything straight away.
“We’re urgently looking at the long-term plans for our constituency offices and surgeries, so that we can provide the best possible service for people in Swindon”
