Shadow Chancellor Gives Support To Local Candidate
Attends dinner in the constituency for Labour's Ruth Cadbury
The Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer, Ed Balls, has given a pre-election boost to Labour's parliamentary election candidate Ruth Cadbury by visiting the constituency this week.
He came to Brentford & Isleworth to attend a gala dinner organised by the local Labour Party and said it was important to elect a Labour Government in May to help people in the Brentford & Isleworth constituency dealing with the cost of living crisis and in order to protect the NHS from Tory privatisation.

The dinner was also attended by the Feltham and Heston MP Seema Malhotra and Hounslow leader, Cllr Steve Curran, as well as a number of Hounslow councillors, Labour members and supporters and local businesses.
Ruth Cadbury said: “Our Council is facing yet more damaging budget cuts in the months to come as the current Government continues to devalue Council services. And many local people are not feeling the benefit of any recovery. We need a change from this cruel Tory-led Government which is supported to the hilt by our current MP Mary Macleod.
