Lorely Burt - Liberal Democrat MP for Solihull

Lorely face

It is a pleasure to be your local MP for Solihull.

Solihull is a wonderful place to live and work and I do my very best to stand up and fight for local people in Parliament.

Recently I have been campaigning for improved health services, lower tax and more apprenticeships to get local young people earning and learning.

Whether or not you voted for me, I am your MP and I am here to help when you need me. I hold weekly advice surgeries and you will find details of how to contact me on this site.

Best wishes,
