After three successive terms as the Conservative Member of Parliament for Bexhill & Battle and over four years as Minister of State for Energy & Climate Change, I stood down from the House of Commons on the 30 March 2015 to rejoin the private sector. However, I will continue to be active in public policy, including in my new role as chair of the London Sustainable Development Commission and as a trustee of the Climate Group.
It has been a huge privilege to serve the local community and I would like to thank all my former constituents for their tremendous support over the years. My successor Huw Merriman MP will do a terrific job as member of Parliament for Bexhill and Battle. All enquiries and issues relating to both the constituency and the Conservative Party should now be directed to Huw.
