Congratulations to members on their re-election to Parliament

The Credit Union would like to offer its congratulations to our members who were re-elected to Parliament at the General Election on 8th June.

David Lammy MP (Tottenham), Emily Thornberry MP (Islington South & Finsbury), Jeremy Corbyn MP (Islington North) and Catherine West MP (Hornsey & Wood Green) were all re-elected with increased majorities.

The MPs are members of our Credit Union and are strong supporters of the credit union movement in general. Jeremy Corbyn and Emily Thornberry are long-standing members of the Credit Union, going back to the days when we were known as Islington Credit Union, and we were delighted when David Lammy MP joined us in 2014.

Catherine West MP (pictured) has also supported us for many years and did an excellent job promoting credit union membership when she was Leader of Islington Council, before being elected to Parliament in 2015. Catherine recently backed a campaign from the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Credit Unions aimed at increasing credit union membership to 2 million by 2020. 

Credit Union Chief Executive Martin Groombridge said: “We would like to congratulate our members on their re-election to Parliament. As our local MPs, they do an excellent job for their constituencies and they are also keen advocates of credit unions, so we are pleased that they have been resoundingly supported once again by local people.”
