The meeting at Westborough Church, which was attended by nearly 100 people, featured an introduction by Mr Goodwill about his role in the Whips Office.

He then spoke about issues that are currently being discussed in Parliament, such as the Succession to the Crown bill, same sex marriage and Common Market Referendum. Mr Goodwill responded to questions about local health services, hospital funding and the future of the NHS. The meetings take place monthly.
