About us

Our Constituency

The House of Commons is made up of 650 elected Members of Parliament, each one represents a 'constituency', a pre-defined geographic area, usually based on the population. However, some constituencies are not of equal size. Hornchurch and Upminster is the 46th largest constituency in England (out of a total number of 533, as at July 2010) with nearly 79,000 people eligible to vote.

The last Parliamentary election was held on 9th June 2017 and Julia Lopez (née Dockerill) was elected to serve as Member of Parliament for the constituency of Hornchurch & Upminster, a relatively new constituency made up of the former constituency of Upminster (held by Dame Angela since 2001) and a section of the former Hornchurch constituency with the remainder of the electorate transferring into the Romford constituency. 

Our MP

The role of our Member of Parliament (MP), is to represent the electorate of Hornchurch & Upminster in Westminster scrutinising legislation and to assist with issues raised by constituents. This can range from queries relating to official bodies and authorities such as the NHS, HMRC, The Department of Work & Pensions amongst many others. MPs  can offer advice on more local issues relating to the provision of local council services but these are best handled by councillors who are elected to the council to represent their local ward. Our office can give you contact details for the most appropriate person to help with your query if that is not our MP.
