Kwasi Kwarteng

Kwasi Kwarteng is the MP for Spelthorne.
He was originally elected as Member of Parliament for Spelthorne in 2010  and was re-elected in May 2015 and again in June 2017.

Kwasi is committed to supporting local enterprise; he regularly visits local business and calls for business-friendly reforms in Parliament. To find the local entrepreneurs of tomorrow, he launched the Spelthorne Business Plan Completion in 2013. This has been run each year since 2013.

Kwasi feels that Spelthorne has a great opportunity to make more of its riverside location and close proximity to central London. He is campaigning to include the Constituency's train stations in TFL's zone 6 and Oyster card scheme.

Heathrow Airport is vital to Spelthorne's economy, and Kwasi is determined to support the airport and ensure that it maintains its global standing. As a member of the Transport Select Committee between June 2010 and July 2013, he pressed for debate on the issue of aviation capacity.

Kwasi was a member of the Work and Pensions Committee. He is involved in a local campaign opposing the construction of a waste incinerator in Charlton Village. He held an adjournment debate in Parliament to highlight local hostility to this.

Spelthorne was badly hit by flooding in early 2014, and Kwasi is working with the local council and the Environment Agency to coordinate a strategy to reduce the risk of floods in the future.
