David Cameron drops in to meet Conservative campaigners in Cannock

Mr Cameron was invited by prospective MP Amanda Milling, who is standing in Cannock Chase. He rolled up his sleeves and got right to work, helping Amanda’s campaign volunteers to stuff envelopes.

Amanda said: “The visit was kept completely hush-hush to the volunteers, who were completely taken aback when the Prime Minister just walked in. It was a fantastic reward for all the hard work they put in, giving hours of their time to support me.”

After the visit to the Conservative Club, the Prime Minister went on Lakeside Boulevard in Cannock to meet a number of local families who had used the government’s Help to Buy scheme to purchase their home.

Mr Cameron said: “I’m delighted that because of Help to Buy, 993 people in the West Midlands have been helped into a home of their own. This is what our long-term economic plan means for hardworking people: a job, lower taxes and the security of being in a home of their own.

“And I know personally there is no better voice for people in Cannock Chase than Amanda Milling. Her attitude sums up the attitude of the Conservative Party today – to make sure all those who put in, get out; to work tirelessly for people who want to get on in life.”
