Andrea Leadsom tells ITV News her views on gay marriage, fox hunting, HS2, Heathrow and going to war

Andrea Leadsom could be our Prime Minister by the autumn. I must admit I don't know her very well, so today I asked Mrs Leadsom a few questions on where she stands on key issues.

Her answers will please many Conservative Party members, others may be less keen.

The Number 10 hopeful told me that she does not support gay marriage law because of "hurt caused to many Christians."

The South Northants MP also said she would hold a vote to bring back fox hunting and would review HS2.

Andrea Leadsom on:

  • HS2 - which would run through her constituency

  • Gay Marriage

  • Fox Hunting

She does not yet have a view on Heathrow expansion, but says she would make an "early decision with the benefit of the facts" on whether to build a third runway.

Addressing the publication of the Iraq inquiry, she said that if she were prime minister, taking the decision to go to war would always be a "last resort."
