Sir Mike Penning, Member of Parliament for Hemel Hempstead, has been formally re-adopted as the Conservative Party Candidate in the event of a General Election.

At a meeting of the Executive Council of the Hemel Hempstead Conservative Association on Monday (14 October) Sir Mike was formally re-adopted as the candidate.

Sir Mike said:
“I am delighted to have been re-adopted as the Conservative candidate. We have a lot of work to do and, if we have a General Election, I look forward to the campaign.

“Only the Conservatives can get Brexit done and be trusted on the economy. A strong economy means we have more money for public services. We are already putting more money into local schools, the police and the NHS.

“It is well-known that I will do everything I can to fight for a new hospital on a new site. It is what the people of west Hertfordshire deserve.”

Chairman of Hemel Hempstead Conservatives, Mark Woods said:
“I’m delighted that the Executive Council confirmed Sir Mike Penning MP as our Parliamentary candidate at the next General Election. Sir Mike is an excellent MP with a strong track record of representing ALL residents of Hemel and surrounding villages. With his campaigns for a New Hospital, Broadband for all and support for Medical Cannabis he has demonstrated how he stands up for ALL.”
