Karl welcomes General Election announcement

Following today’s announcement by the Prime Minister Rt. Hon. Theresa May MP that there will be a General Election on Thursday 8 June, Karl McCartney JP MP, Member of Parliament for the City of Lincoln, said: “I am delighted that the Prime Minister has shown strong leadership in calling a General Election in June this year. It gives the people of the City of Lincoln the opportunity to choose a Conservative Government that will deliver a successful Brexit, continue with improving the quality of life for everyone in Lincoln and continue with its investment plans for our City and County - just has it has done since I was first elected in 2010.

“The choice is clear – between a Conservative Government and Member of Parliament that wants people, businesses and organisations in the City of Lincoln to succeed, and a Labour Party who have repeatedly said they will do all they can to frustrate Brexit and put jobs and livelihoods at risk, both locally and across our Country.”
