Welcome to the April 2017 edition of Sajid Javid MP's newsletter.


to the April edition of my e-Newsletter.

My thoughts and prayers are with all the victims of the horrific terrorist attack in Westminster. As your representative in Parliament, I’m determined to show that we will not be divided. That we are all part of one society and one community.  

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