Tory MP to Stand Down for New Challenges

Arbuthnot is the first Tory MP confirming his resignation from the Parliament at the next election, in order to follow "new challenges" after fulfilling his career as a barrister and an MP.

James Arbuthnot has been the North East Hampshire's MP since 1997, and formerly presented Wanstead and Woodford from 1987 to 1997.

In a statement published by his office, the Defence Select Committee chairman said, "It has been a great privilege to have represented North East Hampshire for the last 14 years, and before that Wanstead and Woodford for 10. My constituents have been generous and supportive and have taught me much.”

"After a fulfilling career, first as a barrister and then in Parliament, it is now right to move on at a time when I can still take on new challenges," the statement also read.

He has said that the best time to resign from the Parliament would be at the next general election, exactly when his leadership will end.

"Until then I shall continue to represent the interests of my constituents to the best of my ability.”

“I am totally convinced that under David Cameron's courageous leadership Conservatives have the best possible chance of winning the next election and serving the best interests of the country," he added.

Britain has planned to hold the next general election in 2015.
