General Election Result: Greg Hands holds Chelsea & Fulham

The Conservative Party’s Greg Hands has been re-elected as Member of Parliament for Chelsea & Fulham.

Greg has represented Fulham as MP since 2005, and Chelsea since 2010. Greg has been active in local politics since 1991, and was first elected to represent local residents on Hammersmith & Fulham Council in 1998. Greg was re-elected as MP with a reduced majority of 8,166 and 52.6% of the vote, when compared with 2015. Labour finished in second place, the LibDems in third. The Greens and UKIP lost their deposits.

Commenting on his re-election, Greg said: “I am truly honoured to have been re-elected by residents of Chelsea & Fulham to continue representing them in the House of Commons. I have worked hard to serve all of my constituents, regardless of sex, creed, colour, sexual orientation, or political persuasion, over the past twelve years, and I look forward to the next five years in Government.

“The national result was not the outcome that we had hoped for, and we need to reflect on that. Nevertheless, I look forward to serving Londoners in my new role as Minister for London, working with the Mayor of London where we have shared interests in promoting our capital city and improving London for all its residents.”
