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.

Statement on Westminster attack


Following the attack on police and members of the public in central London yesterday (Wednesday, 22 March 2017), Karen Lumley, MP for Redditch County commented as follows:

"Yesterday was a very sad day for the people of our country, particularly in London, and my first thoughts are with those who were killed or injured and their families.

"Westminster is the seat of one of the oldest and most respected Governments in the world, and upholds values of free speech, liberty, human rights, and the rule of law – values shared by free people around the world. Amongst the bloodshed of yesterday, we must never waiver from our resolve to beat the terrorists.

"I, along with many MPs, actually knew PC Keith Palmer, the policeman who died, because he was often the first friendly face we would see when entering the Parliamentary estate. I often shared a morning joke with him. My deepest sympathies lie with his family and those of others killed or injured."

Karen was not in Parliament yesterday as she is currently still at home in Redditch recovering from her illness.
