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

    On Monday, Sarah Teather asked an Urgent Question in the House of Commons following reports that Boko Haram had killed 2,000 people in Nigeria.

    During the debate, Sarah said:

    "This weekend saw an inspiring and moving display of international solidarity in the wake of the Paris shootings, but while we were watching the horror unfold in Paris, hundreds or possibly thousands of civilians were slaughtered by Boko Haram in northern Nigeria, with very little international attention. While millions poured on to the streets in Europe in a hopeful, defiant march for peace, thousands of Nigerians fled across the border into Chad in fear of further violence, adding to the tens of thousands who have already fled to Chad, Cameroon and Niger and the 1 million or so people displaced internally."
