• McGinn promises to work hard to bring jobs and investment to St Helens in Maiden Speech

    Conor McGinn, newly elected MP for St Helens North, made his maiden speech yesterday in the House of Commons.

    In his speech he paid tribute to his predecessor Dave Watts, raised his fear as to what five years of Tory rule will mean for our community, but promised to work hard every day for the people of St Helens.

    Speaking in Parliament McGinn said:

    “St Helens North has a distinguished history and great potential for the future, but I fear that things will not be easy in the time ahead.

    “My predecessor served the House and the people of St Helens North diligently for 17 years. Dave Watts is one of the finest men I know. He epitomises all that is noble about public service, and all that is good about politics. His work for his constituency, and his devotion to his constituents, are an example to us all.

    “I come to the House committed to representing my constituents, and determined to work hard for my constituency. I made the people of St Helens North a promise that I would do my best for them, and it is a promise that I intend to keep.”
