Affirmed to serve as your MP

oath.pngOn 14th June 2017 I took an Oath of Affirmation to take up my role as the Member of Parliament for Leeds East.

During the ceremony, I said, 

"I, Richard Burgon, was elected by the people of Leeds East, to serve the interests of the people of Leeds East, and therefore I make the following affirmation, in order to enable me to do that."

And then proceeded with the required statement:

"I do solemnly, sincerely, and truly declare that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, her heirs and successors, according to law."
