Philip Dunne MP formally declares his support today for the Foreign Secretary, Rt Hon Jeremy Hunt MP, to become the next leader of the Conservative Party and Prime Minister.
Mr Dunne, who worked alongside Jeremy Hunt at the Department of Health, said he has the stand out qualities with the right experience to deliver Brexit, unite the country and drive Britain forward as Prime Minister.
Mr Dunne said: “Having worked as Jeremy Hunt’s deputy at Health for eighteen months, I can honestly say he is the most impressive person I have worked for. He brings strong personal qualities and a professional work ethic, with clarity of purpose and inspirational leadership.
These are critical times for our country. We need a Prime Minister who has both the credibility and the character to lead our nation through Brexit. The next PM must be able to inspire the party and the country to unite, and have the vision and ability to build a prosperous future for everyone who lives in post-Brexit Britain. I am clear the best person to do so is Jeremy Hunt and that is why I will be supporting his campaign.”
