MP John Mann ‘delighted’ to still represent Beckingham and Sturton after Parliament vote
BASSETLAW MP John Mann has said he is ‘delighted’ to still be able to represent Trent-side villages near Gainsborough after a vote against redefining boundaries.
Mr Mann is happy to still represent the Beckingham and Sturton Wards as part of the Bassetlaw Parliamentary constituency .
These wards include the villages of Beckingham, Walkeringham, Saundby, North and South Wheatley, Bole, Sturton-le-Steeple and North Leverton.
This follows the vote in the House of Commons when the Governments proposal for an overhaul of constituency boundaries was defeated.
The proposal would have meant that both Beckingham and Sturton wards would have become part of the Sherwood Parliamentary constituency.
The boundary changes will not now be re-visited until the 2020 General Election.
“Should I be elected to Parliament again in 2015, I am delighted that I will continue to represent the people of Beckingham and Sturton,” said Mr Mann.
He continued: “There are many current issues such as wind farms and rural employment that require long term support and action and I am committed to continuing to work on these local concerns and ensuring that local views are represented and heard at local and national levels”.
