David Davies MP

It’s a great privilege to serve Monmouth in Parliament. I look forward to getting straight back to work as the strong voice for the constituency. Many thanks to voters of Monmouth for having faith in me and returning me to Parliament for a fourth term; and a special thanks to my wife Aliz, and wonderful campaign team.

WELSH Conservatives have officially launched their campaign to try to retain the Monmouth constituency at next month’s general election.

Parliamentary candidate David Davies was joined by members and activists on Saturday at Croesyceiliog Cricket and Rugby Club. The 46 year-old father-of-three aims to be re-elected for a fourth successive time, using the recent council election results as a springboard for further gains.

While the constituency boundaries for Westminster are slightly different, including 10,000 voters living in Torfaen, Mr Davies is hoping to capitalise on the rise in local support after the Conservatives won outright control of Monmouthshire County Council.

“The first duty of an MP is to be a champion for the constituency and this has always been a priority for me,” said Mr Davies, who was first elected to Parliament in 2005.

“I have held regular advice surgeries, taken up hundreds of cases for individuals and been active on many local campaigns, such as cutting Severn Bridge tolls.

“The key battleground for this general election is going to be Brexit. We are about to begin a complex series of talks with EU officials in Brussels. The decision for the British people is whether they want these negotiations to be led by Theresa May or Jeremy Corbyn.”

Mr Davies said getting the right Brexit deal for the UK was “vitally important” but there were other issues facing the country, such as controlling immigration, maintaining an adequate defence system, continuing to reduce government borrowing and keeping down taxes.

“The Labour-run Welsh Government is responsible for schools and hospitals in Wales but the Conservative government in England has already shown how to lower waiting lists and increase the number of students getting good grades at GCSE and A-Level,” he added.

“June 8 will be a political milestone and every single vote in every seat will help give Theresa May the mandate she needs to negotiate from a strong position with the rest of the EU, delivering a historic new deal for the United Kingdom.”


MONMOUTH MP David Davies has been formally readopted as the constituency’s Conservative Party parliamentary candidate.

The decision was made by Monmouth Conservative Association members on Wednesday evening (26 April), with those present unanimously voting in favour of Mr Davies returning to fight the general election on 8 June.

The 46 year-old, who was not challenged for the position, has been the MP for Monmouth since 2005. He lives in Osbaston with his wife Aliz and their three children.

Speaking after the reselection meeting held at Usk Conservative Club, Mr Davies said:

“I am absolutely honoured and delighted to be seeking re-election and I am very grateful to those who have once again placed their trust in me.

“I read in the papers that the polls are looking quite good but I take absolutely no notice of them. There is zero room for complacency and as a candidate I will be out campaigning every day to secure a Conservative victory.

“The alternative of having Jeremy Corbyn, John McDonnell and Diane Abbott in charge of our economy, defence, immigration and policing is a horrendous prospect and we cannot take anything for granted.

“Theresa May is offering strong and stable leadership and as somebody who has had the privilege of working with her for 12 years, I consider her to be a trustworthy person and a fantastic Prime Minister.”

Monmouth Conservative Association chairman Christopher Edwards added:

“David has served the Monmouth constituency with great distinction over the past 18 years, both as an MP and as the former Welsh Assembly Member.

“He is hardworking, approachable and fearless in representing the views of his constituents in Parliament, as opposed to representing the views of Parliament in the constituency.

“David has also inspired many activists, some of whom are standing for the first time in the local government elections this month.

“As an association, we are very much looking forward to coming together again for the general election campaign to ensure that David remains the strong voice for the Monmouth constituency.”
