Prime Minister Rishi Sunak announced on May 22 that a General Election will be held on July 4.

To launch The Hunts Post's coverage of the General Election, we'll be speaking to candidates in the constituencies of Huntingdon, North West Cambridgeshire, and the new constituency, St Neots and Mid Cambridgeshire.

Standing as a Conservative Party candidate in St Neots and Mid Cambridgeshire is Anthony Browne MP.

Mr Browne has served as an MP for South Cambridgeshire since the 2019 General Election. Under the boundary changes, he will now be hoping for re-election in his new constituency, St Neots and Mid Cambridgeshire.

Asked about his priorities for his new constituency, Mr Browne said: "Spending the last four years as Member of Parliament for South Cambs, I dedicated myself to addressing the key issues that impact our communities, something I have already brought to the new constituency.

"These efforts will continue, as I work to improve local infrastructure, advocate for better transport links, address water shortages, and fight for better services."

Mr Browne added that: "I've already made progress, from challenging Astrea in St Neots to pushing for a GP surgery to be built in Northstowe, and I'm eager to continue this work for the new constituency."

He is the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Transport.

Mr Browne said that he is "excited" to get the General Election campaign started, and said he will campaign on "the significant progress we've made in our area over the last few months and years."
