How ‘dissolution’ affects you


The General Election will take place on May 7th 2015. Parliament will be “dissolved” from March 30th and it will not sit again until after the result of the General Election is known.

I have written to constituents who have contacted me during the past five years to explain how the dissolution of parliament affects them. You can read a copy of this letter here:  Ricard Burden Dissolution Letter to Constituents
