Mike Thornton to speak in Parliament
10:08am Saturday 9th March 2013 in News
NEW Eastleigh MP Mike Thornton is to make his maiden speech in Parliament on Monday.
Mr Thornton, who swept to victory in the by-election just over a week ago with 13,342 votes, a majority of 1,771 over UKIP’s Diane James, has already attended his first Prime Minister’s Questions session earlier this week.
He said that the speech, which is usually non-political and lasts less than ten minutes, normally focuses on the MP’s constituency and gives an indication of what they feel is important to them.
