The comments made by Dehenna Davison, the Conservative MP for Bishop Auckland, on 19 November 2020.
Being Home Secretary is one of the toughest jobs around, and it takes a tough character to take it on. Priti Patel is working non-stop to deliver what our country voted for – things like more police on our streets and creating a points-based immigration system.
Since I entered Parliament, Priti Patel has been one of the kindest, most supportive people I’ve met. I’ve lost count of how often she’s found time in her hectic diary to discuss local issues and even just to check in and see how I’m doing, or offer advice on being a new MP.
