Meet Brian Mathew!

Your Lib Dem MP for Melksham and Devizes


Statement from Brian Mathew:

To all the residents of Melksham and Devizes constituency, including Bradford on Avon and all our villages,

It is a tremendous privilege to have been elected to serve as your Member of Parliament.

I thank all of you who supported me during the election campaign, and whether you voted for me or not, as your MP I am here to work for each and every one of you. My ambition is on behalf of our whole area, to do all within my power to strengthen our communities, be an advocate for those in need, press for better public services and work to protect our environment.

With over 70 new Liberal Democrat MPs, including this one, Lib Dems are going to start making a difference to the way this country is governed. We will be holding the Labour Government to account over its promises in parliament and introducing Liberal Democrat ideas through debates and the committee system.

New Constituency - New Government

On the 1st of January 2024, the new Parliamentary boundaries came into force, creating the new constituency of Melksham and Devizes. It brings together Council wards from Bradford-on-Avon, Devizes and Melksham, running from Box and Colerne down to The Lavingtons. Melksham and Devizes Liberal Democrats were born on the same day with a brand new local party exec committee.

We are delighted to have been a part of getting the Tories out and unseating Michelle Donelan on Thursday 4th of July! We won't take your votes for granted.

However, the job doesn't stop there. Your local Lib Dems always need more members and supporters, more volunteers to help us, and the money to campaign. We have the Wiltshire Council elections in May 2025 - let's turn County Hall gold!
