The ceremony, which took place in the House of Commons, requires all MPs to 'swear in' by taking an oath or making an affirmation. As a member of the Church of England, Wes Streeting MP chose to take the religious oath of allegiance with the New Testament: "I swear by Almighty God that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, her heirs and successors, according to law. So help me God."

Wes Streeting MP said: "It was a daunting and humbling moment standing in the chamber of the House of Commons to take up my place as the newly elected MP for Ilford North. Every day that I arrive in Westminster, I will carry with me the voices and concerns of the people who sent me to represent them and I will do my very best to protect and defend their interests. I will be forever grateful to those who put their faith in me, I will work hard for every constituent - however they voted - and I hope that my efforts over the next five years will show that I don't just work hard at election time."
