We spoke to Claire Coutinho a few days ago and asked her about her recent appointment as Parliamentary Private Secretary at the Treasury. Claire Coutinho will join the Department as a parliamentary aide as it prepares for the Budget on March 11th.
She addressed the fact that she knew local residents may be slightly concerned about her role at the Treasury but she would like to reassure the local community that she is extremely committed to East Surrey and is looking forward to her more travelling surgeries within the area this month.
Claire said “I am delighted to be joining the excellent team at the Treasury. However, I will also continue to place East Surrey’s needs first and continue my campaigns on buses, potholes and increasing GP provision throughout East Surrey.”
Claire has already carried out 20 visits within the local areas since being elected as our local MP, plus she will also be attending the forthcoming meeting being held in Whytelafe which will focus on on the local crime and road safety measures within the area.
