Commenting on the new select committee appointments, Owen Meredith, National Chairman of the Tory Reform Group said:
“The election of prominent One Nation Conservatives to key select committee positions is welcome news for both Parliament and the country. In Nicky Morgan the Treasury Select Committee has a sound champion for of an economy that puts people are the heart of policy, and free markets delivered with a social conscience.
“The surprise (to some) election of Tom Tugendhat to Foreign Affairs Committee is another example of the growing desire for fresh thinking as a concerted effort to respond to the public’s call for a more liberal Conservatism in politics. In this new Parliament, more than ever before, it is becoming increasingly clear that the Conservative party can provide the centrist leadership and solutions that our party and our country needs for the strong future.”
