Labour candidate for Feltham and Heston Seema Malhotra

In the General Election in 2015, Seema ran for re-election and increased her vote by more than 13,000 votes.

Responding to the announcement of a snap General Election on 8th June, Seema Malhotra said: “This is a Prime Minister once again focussed on her own interests not on the interests of the country.

“At a time when we have growing inequality in education, a Budget that gives to the most wealthy, an NHS in need desperate need of funding and youth services being cut, the Prime Minister should be focussed on healing divisions not widening them.

“For our shared prosperity, community cohesion, our NHS, a better education for our kids, I will stand again to be MP for Feltham & Heston”

Seema Malhotra grew up in Feltham and above her parents’ shop in Osterley. She attended Heston Primary School and the Green School, and has been Member of Parliament for Feltham and Heston since 2011.

“I am passionate about making a difference to people’s lives,” said Seema. “I have worked to introduce local mentoring and work experience projects for young people in our area.

I have helped many residents with casework, and worked with businesses, faith and community organisations. I have always held regular surgeries and coffee mornings. I am not afraid to stand up for what I believe in, and to be a strong voice for Feltham and Heston.

“In Parliament I have called for a Brexit that protects young people’s right to study and work in Europe, and supports our businesses, environmental standards and workers’ rights. I led Labour’s successful campaign to reverse the unfair cuts to tax credits.

“I have campaigned hard against cuts to our NHS and to our school budgets. Costs for small businesses are going up while big business is given large tax cuts.

“We can do better than this. That’s why I’m standing again as your Labour candidate, with the values of fairness, equality and shared prosperity that are right for our community and country.”
