“Since my election in 2017, I have got to know Matt very well, and I fully believe he is the man to take us forward and deliver for the country, A committed defender of the Union, he is also skilled in enabling the next generation to have as much opportunity as the last. His enthusiasm, drive and commitment to a job will ensure that that we can all move past the current deadlock and move forward together. “
The Secretary of State for Health, Matt Hancock added:
“I’m delighted to have the support of Paul in the upcoming leadership race. Paul is one of the rising stars in the Conservative party and a great local MP for East Renfrewshire.
Paul and I understand the imperative of delivering Brexit to prevent a Jeremy Corbyn Government backed up by the SNP who are hell bent on dividing our country further. So we need to come together, turn the page and have a fresh start for our country. I believe I’m the candidate to deliver that.”
