After a week of inductions in Westminster, mother-of-two Mrs Frazer says she will focussing her attention on the issues she was campaigning on in the run up to her election.
She said: “I’m very keen to get on with all the things I campaigned on; fairer funding for our schools, improving infrastructure and supporting business. But people are already e-mailing me with issues that they have got so I’m keen to just start helping people in their everyday lives.
“I’m absolutely honoured to be the representative for South East Cambridgeshire, that’s the job that I’ve been given and that’s the job that I will do.
