About Me

Jam

Thank you for doing me the honour of electing me as your Member of Parliament for the Kensington Constituency. Sir Malcolm Rifkind had a long and very distinguished career in national politics and served the constituency of Kensington & Chelsea since 2005, and from 2010 the new constituency of Kensington. (Greg Hands MP is the MP for CHELSEA).

I live in Kensington, I grew up here, went to school locally, and then to work, and have raised our four children here with my husband Jamie.

I have been a school governor in North Kensington for over 20 years and have served as a Kensington and Chelsea Councillor, and previously an elected member of the GLA and Boris Johnson’s Deputy Mayor of London. I have useful experience both in the constituency and across London.

If you wish to raise a concern with me I hold regular surgeries locally, and make sure that I am available to residents. Some issues will be resolved by the local Council or other agencies, but I can certainly follow these up and see if we can make progress. May I suggest that you contact my office by letter, phone, or email and we can see if we can help out, or advise you who might be able to help.

I support the PM – Theresa May and her new cabinet in delivering the long term economic plan that is vital to our economic recovery.

As your Member of Parliament for Kensington I will continue to raise the issues that are important to our local community:

  • Oppose the way that inconsiderate building projects disrupt the lives of our residents
  • Maintain the sense of family and community that makes Kensington such a special place to live
  • Increase employment opportunities in Kensington
  • Fight to end health inequalities in Kensington
  • Support the renegotiation of our membership terms with the European Union
  • Ensure that for any legislation that will directly affect Kensington that our viewpoint is clearly communicated.
  • Continue to work with our local residents associations to listen to local views.

I am very much looking forward to attending as many community events as I can. Do contact my office if you would like me to visit a community event or project.  Please see “contact me” page.

It is my role to represent the people of Kensington whether or not you voted Conservative. If you do wish to contact the local Conservative office for Kensington, Chelsea and Fulham Conservatives the link is https://www.kcfc.org.uk.

Here is what Boris Johnson, Foreign Secretary and Ex Mayor for London has to say about Victoria

If there is any doubt that you may be away – apply for your postal vote now. Remember if you have a postal vote, you can still use it on the day if you are not away, but if you discover too late you are going to be away then it may be too late to apply for a postal vote. So if in doubt, I recommend you apply for a postal vote.
