ABOUT PRITI

Hello, my name is Priti Patel, member of parliament for Witham.

I am a campaigning MP who has successfully secured new laws to help victims of crime, tax cuts, support for small businesses and new trade and investment opportunities. I have had an international career in the private sector and while growing up I supported my parents run their small businesses. I am believer in freedom because our political and economic freedoms provide us all with the opportunity and freedom to succeed, no matter who you are or whatever your background.
