Nine days to go to the general election and we are bringing you the final piece in our candidate profile series, covering the last of East London Guardian's five constituencies.

This time around we are looking at the three candidates for Chingford and Woodford Green in the lead up to December 12.

In the 2017 general election, Tory Iain Duncan Smith won with a majority of 2,438 votes; he has held the seat since 1992.

The constituency voted remain in the EU referendum, with 50.12 per cent of the vote share.

Here are your candidates for Chingford and Woodford Green

Conservatives – Iain Duncan Smith

East London and West Essex Guardian Series:

As your MP in Chingford and Woodford Green for the last 27 years, and I have always put the needs of my constituents first and foremost. From securing £400 million to rebuild Whipps Cross Hospital, getting extra funding for our schools and supporting the plan to put 20,000 more police on the streets, your needs have been at the heart of all I have done.

Now, as we face an election, I am right behind our Prime Minister Boris Johnson in being committed to honour our original commitment to respect the 2016 referendum result, get Brexit done and deliver democracy.

Once we have left the European Union, we can move on and focus on the things that matter to the people of Chingford and Woodford Green. Since 2010 we have delivered record levels of employment, cut income tax for 31 million people, and reformed the welfare system to make sure that work pays. We inherited a failing education system where children were struggling with basic numeracy and literacy, but now 85 per cent of children are in schools that are good or outstanding.

That hard-won success is at risk from any government other than a Conservative majority government. Voting for any other party here in Chingford and Woodford Green risks Jeremy Corbyn getting into Number 10.

The damage of that, would wreak havoc on our economy and would put at risk the 20,000 more police, higher funding for schools and colleges and, vitally for local people, the rebuilding of our hospital, which is dependent on the extra £33.9 billion for the NHS which only the Conservatives have pledged to deliver in the next parliament.

Labour – Faiza Shaheen

East London and West Essex Guardian Series:

As your MP in Chingford and Woodford Green, I would be fighting to champion your issues locally but also to change laws and policy nationally. I grew up here, went to Chingford Foundation School, I’ve worked on our high streets and I still live here today. After listening to your concerns over the last 18 months, these are the key issues I plan to focus on:

On crime - huge cuts in police, youth and mental health services and early intervention have led to an increase in crime across our constituency. Tory plans to replace officers they previously cut won’t be enough. Labour proposes to invest in policing and all those services that allow them to do their jobs.

On healthcare, Whipps Cross Hospital desperately requires redeveloping and our NHS must see an end to Private Finance Initiatives (PFIs) and privatisation. The current plans for the hospital show it will have less beds than now, this is despite expected population growth over the next decade. We also need sizeable investment in our social care system to take the pressure off hospital beds and families. I will fight for healthcare system suited to our needs.

On education, a Labour government will reverse years of school cuts and create a National Education Service, investing in all sectors from preschool to university. Schools across our constituency have had huge cuts and some have experienced damaging academisation, undermining the ability of our children to flourish. I was one of those children once, I won’t let this continue.

On Brexit, after three and a half years of going around in circles, it is time we brought a credible deal alongside a remain option for you to have a final say. I am the only Remain candidate that can win in Chingford and Woodford Green.

We need urgent green investment and to tackle air pollution. I have pushed for Sadiq Khan to put forward a better scrappage scheme on ULEZ which has now been agreed, I will continue to fight for a fairer scheme which doesn’t unfairly affect working-class families and business owners.

Finally, as someone who runs a small company, I know how difficult it can be. Small businesses are the backbone of our economy. Locally, we can adopt initiatives such as a buy local reward scheme, and I will be fighting for business rates to be redrawn nationally.

Liberal Democrats – Geoff Seeff

East London and West Essex Guardian Series:

Unfortunately, there is only one issue in this election - Brexit. I will, therefore, use the opportunity to make a positive case for Remaining in the EU but also to promote an exciting programme of government under our young dynamic leader, Jo Swinson.

Our manifesto offers:

A fully costed investment in sustainable economic and physical regeneration of infrastructure from high streets and housing.

A commitment to introduce measures to achieve better physical and mental health for all and to provide resources for an NHS fit for the 21st century, funded by just one extra penny in the pound on income tax.

Funded support for research and development of advanced green technologies to combat climate change and help save our planet.

Reform of our political processes.

Our plans will be boosted by a £50 billion bonus, the independently validated minimum loss of GDP over the coming five years under any form of Brexit but which, if we remain in the EU, would be available for spending on childcare, education and environmental protection.

As a chartered accountant, my expertise is in the field of corporate social responsibility. One of my personal aims is to bring about improvements in the governance, reporting, openness and conduct of business.

Without the Liberal Democrats the choice for voters in this constituency would be pretty dire. The Conservative candidate would be happy to crash out of Europe without a deal regardless of the consequences. Labour is a pro-Brexit party and the candidate is a Corbyn acolyte who admits in a recent interview that her party’s position on Brexit "is tricky” and is not sure how the absurdity of negotiating a new deal and then campaigning against it can be resolved.

Chingford and Woodford Green residents deserve better.
