MP Kwasi Kwarteng
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 and ran 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 was a member of the Work and Pensions Committee during the last Parliament. 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.
