Following his selection, Neil said:

“The issues facing rural communities are of particular concern to me. “Penrith and the Border is a vast and sparsely populated constituency.

"Communities need effective linkages and I will champion these issues including improving road access and conditions like the A66, improving train links, protecting rural bus services from Lib Dem/Labour Council cuts and improving digital connectivity.

“I will fight to protect services vital to rural areas such as post offices, banking services and telephone boxes. "I will stand up for constituents struggling to find a place on the housing ladder.

"I will do everything I can to boost the economy, whilst protecting our beautiful and fragile environment.

“The Conservative Party is the party of opportunity. I am passionate about the life chances of our young people and want to help a society where any child can achieve their dream no matter what their background.”
