Brexit and reaction to local election results - by Tom Hunt

As you might have expected, as the Prospective Parliamentary candidate for the Conservative Party I’ve spent much of the past month knocking on doors and talking to Ipswich residents ahead of the local elections that took place on the 2nd May.

Election Result 2019

Congratulations to Liz, Bob, Richard and Erion who were succesfully re-elected on Thursday. Our commiserations and thanks go to Stephen Ion and Lee Reynolds, who have served as councillors for the last 4 years, but were not able to retain their seats. We also thank all of our other local candidates for their hard-working dedication and commitment during this campaign.

Vote Conservative today. We are ensuring families get a home of their own

We welcome the news of 879 more families in Ipswich using Conservative stamp duty cut and Help to Buy to get a foot on the housing ladder. Vote for your Conservative candidate today as we are the party that is determined to give people a home of their own, and ensure that local people have the enhanced right to access local social housing.

With Labour you pay MORE and get less.

On a street which is split by council boundaries you can see a household will pay far LESS than it's neighbour because it's in a Conservative council area.

The facts are indisputable. With Labour you pay MORE and get less. It's time this changes.


Conservatives in Ipswich Campaigning to deliver Brexit

Most of us actively campaigned for Leave in the Referendum and have not changed our stance since. Both local Conservative Associations, Ipswich / Central Suffolk & North Ipswich are still, and will remain, strong campaigners to ensure the result of the Referendum is enacted.

Tom Hunt on Housing Policy

We hear often about how we’re living through a “housing crisis”. It has become harder and harder for young people to secure a foothold on the property ladder and in certain areas there often hasn’t been enough affordable housing to go around.
