Statement from Rt Hon David Evennett MP

I am leaving the Whips Office and the Government at this reshuffle having served on the front bench since 2005. As a former teacher, I hope to get more involved on education issues from the backbenches and will continue to strongly support our PM and Conservative Government.

I will continue to work hard for all of the people of Bexleyheath and Crayford, and serve the interests of the constituency and our Borough. Being the MP for my home constituency has always been and remains my top priority.
