Wera is honoured and humbled that the people of Bath have re-elected her and entrusted her to represent them in the new Parliament.
Here is Wera's statement on the new Parliament:
"I am honoured and humbled that the people of Bath have re-elected me and entrusted me to represent them in the new Parliament. I will continue to fight for an open, tolerant and outward-looking Britain.
The outcome of the general election means that we will be leaving the European Union at the end of January 2020. For many in this city who have supported the campaign to stop Brexit, this will be hugely disappointing.
I believe that Brexit will make it harder to tackle the big challenges ahead. The Climate Emergency is real but I fear this new government will actively delay climate action. I also remain sceptical that the dramatic worsening of public services will actually be halted, let alone reversed.
The country urgently needs a politically progressive alternative to what the Conservatives are offering and the hard work for all of us on the centre left starts now."
