Welcome.

Thank you for visiting my website. During the General Election Keith is no longer a sitting MP. Throughout the election campaign this website will be updated with campaign news and activities. Any articles referring to Keith as an MP and his Parliamentary work pre-date the election. I welcome all comments and suggestions about issues in Leicester East.

With very best wishes,

Keith Vaz
