Graham Stuart Leaves Ministerial Role To Focus On Local Campaigns

Local MP Graham Stuart has left his role as Minister of State for Energy and Net Zero to focus on campaigns in Beverley and Holderness.

The MP had served in the Government for most of the past eight years, including roles at the Department for International Trade, the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development and latterly as Minister of State for Energy and Net Zero.

Graham has many campaigns he wants to focus on locally, including his recently launched Make Our Roads Safer campaign, continuing to work to end the erection of telegraph poles for broadband delivery, installing defibrillators in the community through his CADEY campaign, improving access to dentistry and healthcare, working with farmers on flooding or making progress on the proposed rail link between York and Hull.

He will fully support the Prime Minister from the back benches.

Graham Stuart, MP for Beverley and Holderness, said: “I’m proud to have served in the Government for most of the past eight years, but now it’s time to focus on Beverley and Holderness.

“I’m proud to have achieved much over the past eighteen years, from rock armour at Withernsea to saving East Riding Community Hospital; installing life-saving defibrillators in rural communities and slashing fares on the Humber Bridge.

“I’m looking forward to working with communities to Make Our Roads Safer, helping the Council take full advantage of the opportunities brought by devolution, pressing the case for York to Hull Rail and improving healthcare in Beverley and Holderness.”
