Royston Smith The MP for Southampton Itchen, Royston Smith (Con), is running what he describes as a “local referendum” on his website, asking whether respondents are in favour of the creation of new grammar schools in Southampton.



Holding local referendums on important issues is one of several “pledges” Smith has made on his website. You can read his others if you scroll down on this web page.
