Mike Weatherley, the Conservative Member of Parliament for Hove and Portslade, has welcomed the by-election victory in Newark, which was won with a strong majority of over 7,000 votes.
Mike, along with many of his colleagues, visited Newark in the run up to the election to help support Robert Jenrick. This is the first by-election the Conservative Party has won as a governing party for 25 years.
Commenting, Mike said: “This is a great result for the Conservative Party. The voters in Newark have clearly endorsed Robert Jenrick and back the Conservative’s long-term economic plan that is securing a better future for Britain. I look forward to working with Robert in the near future.”
