All of the MPs in Cumbria, Dumfries & Galloway and the Scottish Borders have told ITV Border they hope to stand for re-election.

A snap General Election will take place on 8 June, meaning voters across the region will be returning to the polls for the second time in just over two years.

For voters in the Copeland constituency it will be the second election in a matter of months, as the Conservative Trudy Harrison won a by-election there in February.

Having told ITV Border of their desire to stand again, the MPs will need to be selected by their political parties, before it is confirmed that they will stand for re-election.

Border region MPs:

  • Calum Kerr (SNP, Berwickshire, Roxburgh and Selkirk)
  • Richard Arkless (SNP, Dumfries and Galloway)
  • David Mundell (Cons, Dumfriesshire, Clydesdale and Tweeddale)
  • Sue Hayman (Lab, Workington)
  • Tim Farron (Lib Dems, Westmorland and Lonsdale)
  • Trudy Harrison (Cons, Copeland)
  • John Stevenson (Cons, Carlisle)
  • Rory Stewart (Cons, Penrith and the Border)
