Sarah Newton Standing Down

Falmouth and Camborne MP Sarah Newton is standing down at the next General Election.

First elected 2010, she was Minister for the Disabled Under Theresa May.

Her statement reads - “While we don’t know when the next General Election will be, it is possible that it will be this year.”

“After much careful thought I have decided not to seek re-election at the forthcoming General Election so that I can pursue other interests.”

“Making this statement now enables the Truro and Falmouth Conservative Association time to select a new Parliamentary candidate.”

“Please be assured that in the time I have left as the local MP I will continue to work as hard as the day I was first elected.”

“I am proud of what I have achieved, working with many dynamic and creative local people in this constituency. I am very appreciative of the support that I have been given by many people in this great place.”

Newton’s majority plunged to 3,792 in 2017 from 14,000 in 2015.
