Local MP John McDonnell spent the first Saturday of the 2017 General Election campaign on the Railway Estate in Hayes following up on a walkabout inspection on the estate he undertook a few weeks ago.
John will be out campaigning regularly in the Hayes and Harlington constituency until Election Day on the 8th June in the community in which he has lived for 40 years and has brought up his family in.
Two of the key Labour Party policies he will be drawing attention to are Labour’s plans to build council housing to tackle the local housing crisis and the need to fully fund our NHS and protect the NHS from being privatised under the Tories.
John said: “I have been highlighting the environmental problems residents are experiencing on the Railway Estate. After my walkabout inspection a few weeks ago I planned a public meeting for residents to revive a residents group on the estate. Even though the election has been called I didn’t want to let local residents down so I will be hosting the meeting as promised next Tuesday.
I will be out on the High Street in Hayes and knocking on as many doors as I possibly can over the next 6 weeks to hear from residents what the priorities are for Hayes and Harlington.
Labour in government will build council housing again to put an end to this Tory housing crisis and ensure our kids have somewhere they can afford to live. We will ensure our NHS is fully funded and the threat of privatisation by the Tories is lifted.”
