In the final part of five three-minute interviews, Ipswich MP Ben Gummer explains why he enjoys being the town’s representative in parliament.

Mr Gummer said he felt being the MP for almost a whole town was better than representing part of a larger area and helped him to enjoy his job.

The five interviews have been published every day this week at 6pm.

See yesterday’s interview about Mr Gummer’s new job as Minister for the Cabinet here, Wednesday’s interview on making a success of the Brexit vote here, on the awarding of the East Anglian rail franchise to Abellio Greater Anglia here and see here for Monday’s interview on the level of redevelopment currently taking place in Ipswich.
