Matt Smith's Profile in the East London Advertiser

“Bethnal Green and Bow deserves a local MP who strives to represent all communities in this vibrant and diverse area. Together we can ensure that the people of our constituency benefit from more local accountability, more opportunity, more social mobility and more integration”.

“I am running a positive campaign to build on the achievements of Conservatives in government over the last five years - more jobs, more apprenticeships, more small businesses, better schools and a properly funded NHS, underscored by a growing economy. We are extending right-to-buy and building new homes on brownfield sites”.

“I have organised jobs and CV clinics for local job seekers and as your MP I would turn these in to annual Jobs Fairs. I want more high-skill jobs locally. I will support digital industry start-ups. I will support our high streets by backing our pubs, restaurants, cafes and shops”.

“I will also stand up to Town Hall corruption and I will fight to end taxpayer-funded politics in Tower Hamlets”.

“If I am elected on 7th May, I would be proud to serve you as a dedicated constituency MP. As your MP I would work tirelessly for a political, and social, fresh start for Bethnal Green and Bow”.
