Very disappointed my colleague Chris Kelly will not contest his Dudley seat at the next election. We are losing the wrong people
Really sad that my friend and Parliamentary neighbour Chris Kelly is standing down at the next election, a great guy who will be missed
Sorry to see Chris Kelly standing down as an MP. He's a good man. Loss to Parliament. I suppose he is more than half my age!!
