The Prime Minister campaigns in Eastleigh

Thursday, February 14 2013

David Cameron and Maria Hutchings in Eastleigh

David Cameron travelled to Eastleigh today to support the Conservative candidate Maria Hutchings.

The Prime Minister went with Maria to B&Q’s UK headquarters, to take questions about local issues from the 800 staff gathered there. Afterwards the Prime Minister also joined Maria campaigning on the streets of Eastleigh, knocking on doors and leafleting in the local area.

The Prime Minister said:

“It was great to join Maria on the campaign trail today. She is a great campaigner who would be a strong local champion for the people of Eastleigh.”

Maria Hutchings said:

"I would like to say a massive thank you to B&Q for having the Prime Minister and I here today. It’s fantastic that one of Britain’s most recognised and most successful businesses is based right on our doorstep. B&Q isn’t just a major job and wealth creator for Eastleigh, but for the whole of Hampshire.

"I will be an MP that you can trust, that will truly understand your constituency and put your issues first. A good voice for you in Parliament."
