Sajid Javid Letter

The attached letter from Sajid Javid on Twitter reads:

Mr. Paul Uppal
Bromsgrove Conservative Association

Dear Paul,

I am writing to inform you that I have decided not to stand at the next General Election as the Conservative Party candidate for Bromsgrove.

While that election is not required to be held for two more years, the Conservative Party has asked MPs to confirm their intentions at this early stage to enable preparations for the campaign, especially in light of various boundary changes. This has accelerated my decision making.

It has been a decision I have wrestled with for some time, but I have ultimately concluded not to stand again for what would be my fifth election.

I am very proud of what we have achieved for Bromsgrove District and of my work in Parliament and Government. This decision will not mark the end of my Parliamentary activity, particularly for the causes I care deeply about. Nor will it impact my duties as a local MP on behalf of constituents across Bromsgrove.

Being the local MP and serving in Government has been the privilege of my life, and I am immensely grateful for the opportunity to serve. I always sought to make decisions in the national interest, and in line with my values, and I can only hope my best was sufficient.

I will of course, continue to support my friend, the Prime Minister, and the people of Bromsgrove in any way I can.

Yours sincerely,

Sajid Javid (Signature)
