2019 has been a packed year for me across our area, as well as in Westminster. This last week, however, has been particularly busy.
Last Thursday, 12th December, I was honoured and humbled to be re-elected Member of Parliament for Aldershot, Farnborough, Blackwater and Hawley, and incredibly pleased to be part of the historic and emphatic victory achieved by the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson.
This week our new majority Conservative Government unveiled the most radical Queen's Speech in a generation - one that will take us out of the EU, overhaul our immigration system, and enshrine into law record investment for our NHS. It will take the country forward with an ambitious One Nation programme to unite and spread opportunity to every corner of the United Kingdom.
And, this afternoon, I played my part as your MP in getting Brexit done - voting for Boris' Brexit Deal and the second reading of the Withdrawal Agreement Bill. I look forward to returning to Parliament in January to immediately finish the job, take the UK out of the EU on 31st January, and - at the beginning of a new decade - move our country forward.
Whatever your plans, please accept my warmest best wishes for a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year!
Leo Docherty MP
Member of Parliament for Aldershot
