Fighting for the issues that matter most to you!

Welcome to Royston Smith MP’s Website 2018-02-08T18:09:03+00:00

I am proud to have been elected as the Member of Parliament for the Southampton Itchen Constituency again in 2017 and I have now been an MP here since 2015.

As someone who has lived here all of my life, I know and understand the area intimately and will fight for the issues that matter most to you; your concerns are my concerns. I want to make Southampton and its residents safer, more prosperous and to make our city one of which we can all be proud.

Thank you for your support.
