As the gloves came off in this week’s televised debate between the two contenders for leadership of the Conservative Party and the next Prime Minister, our local MP Sally-Ann Hart has declared her full support for Rishi Sunak.
In a statement to Rye News, she said: “The on-going leadership contest has showcased the excellent range and depth of talent in the Conservative Party. Both Rishi Sunak and Liz Truss are well placed to take the country forward whilst continuing to deliver on the commitments made in the 2019 election campaign, but I am backing Rishi to become the next Party Leader and our Prime Minister.
“Having led the economic response to a once-in-a-lifetime pandemic, I am convinced that Rishi’s diligence and seriousness are exactly what our country needs to help get us through the challenging times ahead.
“As the future Prime Minister, he has committed to continuing the government’s crucial work on levelling-up which is particularly important in coastal areas such as Hastings, Rye and the surrounding villages, and Rishi will also take immediate action on other issues such as tackling the NHS backlogs.”
