The Harrow Times has asked each parliamentary candidate to list five reasons why they should become an MP at the General Election on May 7.

Here Gerard Barry, UKIP's candidate for Ruislip, Northwood and Pinner, explains why you should vote for him.

1) HS2 has to be scrapped, it has no business case.

2) The people of the United Kingdom must be given a fair and immediate referendum on our membership of the European Union.

3) Immigration has to be brought under control.

4) Your elected member of parliament should live in the constituency he represents.

5) The UK needs urgent reforms to simplify the tax code.
