Dominic Raab MP has shed light on what the 'shared society' Theresa May is aiming for could mean for Britain.

The term came up in an article the PM wrote for The Telegraph, where she outlined what she wants to do in her time as prime minister.

Mrs May said the Government's main challenge is to "build a stronger, fairer Britain that works for everyone, not just a privileged few", and suggested that mission is to begin by eliminating some of the  "burning injustices that undermine the solidarity of our society."

Raab, MP for Esher and Walton, said the speech and article was designed to demonstrate to the electorate how strong her convictions are. 

"Theresa May has done few of these sort of speeches," he told Julia Hartley-Brewer. "It helps if you’re going to lay out a series of problems - that’s the job of her speech.

"It’s about having a wider strategy that knits these strategies together. They give people a sense of what she stands for.

"People want to know - not just the problems to be fixed, but also the convictions driving it."
