"I was first elected as Member of Parliament for Brent North in the 1997 election that took place 20 years ago today.

Secured £47 million to bring JFS from Camden to Brent.
Brought 'Move It!' to 3,000 children a week in our secondary schools to help tackle childhood obesity.
Opened the new Wembley Primary School.
Introduced the Control of Fireworks Act to end the all night noise nuisance residents used to complain of.
Built the new A&E at Northwick Park Hospital.
Campaigned against the air pollution that is damaging our children's health.
Rolled up my sleeves with local residents on clean up days to get rid of fly tipping and litter.
