Another Conservative MP has said he will not be standing at the next general election.
Chris Skidmore, the MP for Kingswood, said in a statement “there has been no greater honour in my life” than to represent the constituency.
“Parliamentary boundary changes will result in the Kingswood constituency ceasing to exist. With no alternative seat, I have decided that I do not wish to fight at another constituency elsewhere in the region or country, especially with a very young family who deserve to see more of their father in their lives”.
Mr Skidmore served jointly at the Department for Education and the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy from 10 September 2019 to 13 February 2020.
He previously served in the Department of Health and Social Care and the Cabinet Office.
It comes after Dehenna Davison and Sir Gary Streeter announced they were stepping down at the next election on Friday.
