Tory candidate announces dates


Voters will have the chance to quiz the Skegness and Boston Conservative election candidate at a series of events as he continues a ‘public meeting tour’ of the constituency.

Matt Warman has announced details of five more meetings as the election campaign picks up pace, with fewer than 100 days until May 7.

He said: “I began this programme last year because I want to meet as many voters across the constituency as possible and hear their views. These are open forums where we’ve spoken about everything from hunting to Europe and from Trident to Israel.”

Each event is themed, but guests can raise any issue they wish.

Further dates and venues for the meetings will be announced in due course, with the programme set to carry on in the run up to the election, as well as a programme of Facebook and Twitter Q&As around the same time.

Matt, whose family lives near Holbeach and is currently head of technology at the Daily Telegraph, added: “Millions around Britain feel disconnected from politics; these are the kind of public meetings, open to all, that I want to hold now and that I would continue to hold regularly as the Conservative MP for Boston and Skegness: listening to constituents is crucial if Westminster is to build a better Britain.”
