Henry Smith MP Celebrates Equal Franchise Anniversary

To mark 90 years since men and women over 21 gained the right to vote, Henry Smith MP has spoken at an EqualiTeas event at Crawley Museum to share, debate and celebrate what equality means, over a cup of tea.


Theresa May's vision for the future economic partnership between the United Kingdom and the European Union.

The Fight Against Cancer

Last weekend saw the annual Crawley Race For Life take place in Tilgate Park. Raising money for Cancer Research UK, this event sees hundreds of women take part in either a 5k or 10k race to raise money for the fight against cancer. Last year’s event saw almost 2,000 women raise nearly £100,000. I congratulate everyone who took part at the weekend and I was pleased to sponsor a runner who very sadly had lost a friend to cancer at far too young an age.

Supporting the NHS

I have long taken the view that ideally as a country, we should be able to produce the doctors and nurses that we need. However in reality, we haven’t been able to so for decades and it has been hardworking doctors and nurses from abroad who have ensured that we haven’t had major shortages in our health service.
