From 0001 on Monday 30 March, Parliament will be dissolved and so I will no longer be Member of Parliament for Brent Central.

It has been a huge privilege to serve as an MP in Brent. I am very grateful to the people of Brent for electing me three times, and also for the generous way in which so many invited me into their homes and into quite private aspects of their lives as they shared their story with me along the way.

Sarah Teather will stand up for local people in parliament
