Statement from Karen Lumley MP regarding Brexit Bill

Karen said: "This week has been a unique time in British politics and politicians were expected to attend on both sides including those who are sick, including myself.

"There were rebellions on both sides of the House and my presence was required on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. I was brought in every day in a car to vote, including very late into the night on Monday. This is a unique way of working, but this is my job and probably a once-in-a-lifetime vote.

"The Brexit bill has now passed through the House of Commons, receiving its Third Reading on Wednesday (8 February). I am delighted because, as everyone should know, my position has been clear all along that we should leave the European Union, and 62 per cent of the Redditch people voted this way last June.

"I spoke personally to the Prime Minister on Monday who thanked me for returning in difficult circumstances."

Karen is now back in Redditch and hopes that very soon she will be able to resume part-time working, subject to her doctor's approval.

Her London and Redditch offices are both working normally.
