Keighley and Illkley MP Kris Hopkins has pledged his support to Theresa May's bid to become the next leader of the Conservative Party.
Our country has now entered one of its most perilous and uncertain periods since the Second World War. And we need a serious and trusted person to be our Prime Minister.
We face threats to our economy, threats to our security and threats to the very existence of our United Kingdom.
Over the last six years at the very top level of Government, Theresa May has proven herself to be one of the toughest and most astute Home Secretaries of modern times.
She has also pledged to bring the country back together and, as the breadth of her support in the party from former Remain and Leave supporters demonstrates, she has appeal across the political spectrum.
Having worked closely with her throughout that period, I can say without hesitation that Theresa is the right person with the right experience to tackle the many challenges we face.
I am proud to offer Theresa my full support to become the new Leader of the Conservative Party and our next Prime Minister.

Community rugby clubs are being encouraged to apply for funding to buy life-saving equipment as part of a campaign launched by the widow of Keighley Cougars player Danny Jones.
Lizzie Jones is hoping grants to buy defibrillators will help junior teams put safety mechanisms in place. Her husband Danny died after suffering a cardiac arrest on the pitch last May.
The Danny Jones Defibrillator Fund aims to raise money that will help hundreds of community clubs and junior teams across the country to purchase a defibrillator, while helping raise awareness of the value of defibrillators as life saving devices to community clubs
Defibrillators cost around £1,000 each and provide potentially life-saving treatment to anyone suffering a cardiac arrest.
Clubs can purchase a defibrillator from RFL-recommended WelMedical by clicking here. Clubs are encouraged to purchase the defibrillators and then submit an application to the Danny Jones Defibrillator Fund to help with the costs.
The purpose of Danny Jones Fund is to encourage as many community Rugby League clubs as possible to purchase a defibrillator via a grants programme administered by Rugby League Cares.
The Danny Jones Defib Fund Grant committee will achieve this through the provision of a small grant to enable and assist clubs with the purchase.
The Danny Jones Fund is now welcoming applications from the community game. An application guide and form can be found by clicking here.
Applications for this round of grants need to be submitted by Thursday 28 April 2016.
