Harrow campaigner Uma Kumaran has been selected as Labour’s candidate in the 2015 election to choose the next MP for Harrow East.
“My parents fled to Britain over 30 years ago in the midst of civil war in Sri Lanka and they worked hard to rebuild their lives and raise a family in Harrow.” she told Colombo Telegraph.
Gareth Thomas, Labour’s MP for Harrow West and the former Minister of State at the Department for International Development said; “Uma will be a first-class MP standing up for the people of Harrow East. It will be a pleasure to campaign with her to reverse the cuts in police numbers in Harrow, for a better Northwick Park and to get more investment in our schools. Together we will be highlighting the pressure on the living standards of too many Harrow families as a result of unchecked energy bills and the squeeze on wages since David Cameron took office.”
