Please note: This site covers the period that I was a Member of Parliament from May 2010 to June 2017.
Richard Fuller, MP for Bedford and Kempston, is asking constituents to nominate local residents to become Olympic Torchbearers. The 2012 torch relay is looking for 8,000 “inspirational” people to carry the torch on its journey around the country.
“We already have a number of great reasons as to why the torch should come here, including our history of nurturing home-grown Olympians.
“But it will be even harder for the London 2012 committee to turn down our request to have the torch pass through Bedford and Kempston if we a large number of local people nominated to carry the torch.
“We have an abundance of inspiring life stories in our remarkable town, so I hope people will visit the London 2012 website and nominate!”

During the Budget Debate on the 23rd March, Richard praised a number of the Chancellor’s announcements and put forward a few ideas of his own.
