“Letter to the Andover Advertiser”

“Contrary to recent assertions in the media, I have always intended to stand down as Deputy Mayor of London before the general election campaign.  I made this intention clear to hundreds of members of the North West Hampshire Conservative Association on the night of my selection as their candidate in July last year.

I am very proud of the work my work at City Hall, first on policing and crime, and since 2012 on business and enterprise. With employment in London at the highest level ever, and crime falling fast, I believe I can enter the race for North West Hants with a solid record of achievement and the experience to be an effective successor to Sir George Young.”
