Welcome to the November 2015 edition of Sajid Javid MP's newsletter.


to the November edition of my e-Newsletter. 

In light of the recent tragedy in Paris, I know I speak on behalf of all Bromsgrove residents when I say that our thoughts and prayers are with the people of France following the appalling terrorist attacks. Paris's motto translates as 'she is tossed by the waves but does not sink'- an ideal we should all take to heart.

It's important for me to hear your comments, thoughts, and feedback, so please don't hesitate to contact me.
