“Thank you for contacting me calling for a general election.
The Dissolution and Calling of Parliament Act 2022 provides that Parliament is automatically dissolved five years after it first meets unless it is dissolved sooner.
Otherwise the timing is a matter of discretion for the Prime Minister. Rishi Sunak has stated publicly that her will seek to call an election in the second half of 2024.
I look forward to the next election whenever it comes.
Thank you again for taking the time to contact me.
Sally-Ann Hart MP.”
