James Brokenshire has been chosen as the prospective parliamentary candidate for Old Bexley and Sidcup for the 2015 General Election.

He said: “It is a privilege to have been re-adopted as the Conservative prospective parliamentary Candidate for Old Bexley and Sidcup.

“Over the last three and a half years I’ve enjoyed working alongside community campaigners to advance the best interests of this area.

“I’ve also had the honour to serve as a minister in government helping to cut crime and keep our country safe. This has also included having responsibility for delivering the security programme for the incredible London 2012 Games and securing the treaty with Jordan which ultimately led to the deportation of Abu Qatada.

“But I know there is more still to be done -to secure economic recovery, to promote jobs and growth and to support hard working families. I also want to see us continuing to cut immigration to sustainable levels, significantly reforming our human rights laws and giving the public a say on our continued EU membership.”
