Priti Patel MP to work on her constituency after resignation


MP for Witham, Priti Patel said she will focus her work on her constituency after her resignation from Government.

Priti Patel MP stood down as International Development Secretary after holding several  secret meetings while on a family holiday earlier this year.

Since resigning her Cabinet post, she has apologised and confirmed she will remain as constituency MP, representing areas including Stanway.

She said: “Being the MP for Witham has always been my number one priority.”


“Following my departure from the Cabinet, I am able to speak up for this part of Essex in the House of Commons and look forward to meeting more residents, families and businesses.“

She added: “I am continuing to campaign and work to secure improvements to education in the constituency, new health facilities and investment in our infrastructure.”

“Over the coming months there are crucial decisions that need to be made in relation to housing, the A120 & A12 and rail investment and I will be doing all I can to ensure that my constituents are fully represented.”

In a letter to the Prime Minister, Theresa May she offered a “fulsome apology” accepting her behaviour “fell below the standards of transparency and openness” expected.
