Merton's two Members of Parliament have set out their plans after being re-elected last week.

Wimbledon MP Stephen Hammond, said: "It is the greatest honour to be re-elected to serve my community, thank you to everybody who voted for me."

The Conservative MP received 23,946 votes to Labour's 18,324 in the vote on Thursday, 8 June. This is slightly down from the 25,225 votes gained by the party in 2015. This year, Labour increased their vote share by 9.5 per cent.

Turnout this year in the constituency was 77.2 per cent, up from 74 per cent in the 2015 election.

Mr Hammond said: "I will do everything I can to continue to be Wimbledon’s voice in Westminster, and to work hard for everybody in our area, no matter how they voted.

"I am already getting back to work on the priorities I set out in the election, ensuring Crossrail 2 works for our area, and that our Town Centres are regenerated in a way that is sympathetic to the wishes of residents.

"Nationally, my priority is to ensure this Government delivers for Londoners and that protecting our Capital and the economy is at the forefront of the Brexit negotiations."

In Mitcham and Morden, Siobhain McDonagh held her seat and increased Labour's vote share by 8 per cent.

The re-elected MP received 33,039 votes to the Conservative's 11,664.

Turnout in the constituency increased from 66 per cent to 70.

Ms McDonagh said: "It is a real privilege to be re-elected as the Labour Member of Parliament for Mitcham and Morden and I am overwhelmed with the number of people who voted.

"It is a true honour to represent the constituency in which I live and in which I was born and I will continue to stand up for all who live in Mitcham and Morden.

"I am also extremely grateful to all the outstanding volunteers who gave endless energy, time and enthusiasm throughout the campaign."
