Felicity Buchan, the MP for Kensington, has announced that she is resigning from her role as a Parliamentary Private Secretary at the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. Please find the full text of her letter to the Prime Minister below:
Dear Prime Minister,
It is with great sadness that I tender my resignation as a Parliamentary Private Secretary in the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy. It has been a huge honour to have served in this Department at a time when energy security and the transition to net zero are so critical.
However, I am afraid that you have lost the confidence of my constituents and me. The current situation is untenable.
I believe passionately in Conservative values and want to ensure that we are implementing Conservative policies without distractions. That requires fresh leadership and it requires a new vision for the country. That vision must be a country of low taxes and high growth; we must be the party of aspiration.
I will continue to devote my efforts to serving the people of Kensington.
Felicity Buchan MP
