I’d like to thank all those who supported me throughout, from both Vale of York and Thirsk and Malton.
It is my intention to stand for Thirsk, Malton and Filey constituency at the next General Election.
Meanwhile I remain committed to the Conservative Party locally and nationally and shall continue with my constituency and parliamentary duties with my customary passion.
In the coming year I will support Conservative candidates in the European Elections in Yorkshire and the Humber and Conservative local Government candidates in Thirsk, Malton and Filey in 2015.
