Witham MP Priti Patel has been appointed Home Secretary in the new Government administration formed by incoming Prime Minister Boris Johnson. Commenting on her appointment Priti said:

“It is a tremendous honour and privilege to be asked to serve in the new administration formed by Boris as Home Secretary. The role comes with significant responsibilities and I will do everything in my power to keep our country safe and secure while fighting the scourge of crime that we see on our streets. I am already working on plans to increase the number of police officers by 20,000 and introduce a new points-based immigration system which the public can have confidence and trust in.”

“While being a member of the Cabinet is a great honour, I will continue to focus on being a strong voice for everyone in the Witham constituency, supporting local communities and helping my constituents with the individual challenges and problems they face.”

Commenting on the formation of the new Government, Priti added:  “Boris brings an enormous amount of energy to the heart of Government and his message of optimism and hope means our country now has a fresh start.”

“There is now a strong team in Government who believe in Britain and who are working to deliver Brexit and unify our country. Work is also taking place on developing and implementing an exciting domestic policy programme, to give our country a more prosperous future.”
