Kwasi Kwarteng

Member of Parliament for Spelthorne
Kwasi Kwarteng was re-elected as Member of Parliament for Spelthorne in May 2015. He was originally elected in 2010.

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 was run again in 2014.

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 is currently 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.
