I am pleased to congratulate Liz Truss as the successful candidate in the Conservative leadership contest, and next Prime Minister following her appointment by HM The Queen, tomorrow.
There are some very real challenges facing our country currently including high inflation rates and cost of living and energy price challenges and we all need to get behind our new Prime Minister to get on deal with these issues as well as continuing to deliver on the election promises made in 2019 including the levelling up agenda.
Commiserations go to Rishi Sunak and all the other candidates who put themselves up for the leadership election in the initial stages, demonstrating what a broad range of talent we have within the Conservative party.
Liz Truss has my full support and I look forward to continuing to work in the best interests of my Carlisle constituency.
