I am deeply honoured and humbled to be sworn in as the Member of Parliament for Newport West.
I will represent you to the best of my abilities.
I will seek to build trust, at a time when trust in politics is so dangerously low.
Thank you for this opportunity to serve. pic.twitter.com/rkN2ltCxoE

Labour’s newest MP, Ruth Jones, has been sworn in. She will represent the Welsh seat of Newport West, previously occupied by Paul Flynn.
Harriet Harman, the Mother of the House, tweeted her congratulations and photos of Jones in Westminster this afternoon:
