Matt Hancock to stand down as MP at next election

Evesham Editorial 7th Dec, 2022   0

FORMER Health Secretary Matt Hancock has announced he will not be standing as an MP at the next general election.

He was suspended as a Conservative MP after taking part in the ITV reality show I’m A Celebrity.

In a letter to Rishi Sunak, Mr Hancock said he had “discovered a whole new world of possibilities which I am excited to explore”.

He added that politicians need to find “new ways to reach people” outside Parliament.

He concluded his letter by saying it had been “an honour to serve in Parliament and represent the people of West Suffolk”.

“I will play my part in the debate about the future of our country and engage with the public in new ways,” he said.
