Andrew has secured a top post on one of Parliament’s most important and influential committees.
He has been elected to the key Political and Constitutional Affairs Select Committee. Select Committees are powerful bodies which hold the Government to account and can call Ministers to answer questions. In recent months the Political and Constitutional Affairs Select Committee has quizzed Nick Clegg, the Deputy Prime Minister, and will scrutinise issues such as the referendum on the Alternative Vote system and the introduction of elected mayors.
Andrew said: “I am honoured to have been elected to such a well-respected and important committee. I am thrilled that as a newly elected MP, Parliament should have the confidence to give me such a responsible role.
“I am looking forward to the challenge but want to reassure everyone that it will not impact my work representing Burton.”
