This evening Conservative Members of Parliament conducted a vote to decide if, as a Party, the majority still have confidence in the Prime Minister’s leadership.
The majority voted for Boris Johnson to continue in his role as Leader of the Conservative Party and Prime Minister.
I have spent the day listening to the views of my constituents and local Conservatives in Gosport, Lee on the Solent, Stubbington and Hill Head. I am grateful to everyone who has taken the time to send me their thoughts, which I reflected in my own vote.
I know that many feel extremely strongly about this issue on both sides of the argument, however, I think it’s important that we all now respect the democratic decision, so that we can move forward, focusing on the pressing issues that face us all.
