I have just heard this morning that I have been shortlisted for Bethnal Green and Bow selection for the Parliamentary seat. I understand that there will be six people in total on the shortlist.

I am obviously delighted. In the meantime we will be carrying on with our work across the consituency. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any issues that you would like to raise.

Further details of the selection meeting to follow.

Claire Palmer,

Do you know whether there will be any hustings, or other meeting with the candidates before the vote?

The open primary will be a hustings - as I understand it - there will be 10 minutes of questions from a Chairman followed by 10 minutes of questions from the public. There are no speeches. If you are interested in attending, please do register. If you have any questions of me, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
