Profile: Conservative MP James Wharton

MPs will today debate a private members' bill on an EU referendum brought by the Conservative MP for Stockton South, James Warton.

At 29, the former solicitor is the youngest Conservative MP. He was among the 114 Tory MPs to vote in favour of an amendment to the Queen's Speech in May.

Despite being a Eurosceptic, he told ITV News that it was important to have the debate so that the government can "refocus our efforts on those things that really matter".
