Richard Foord to stand in new Honiton & Sidmouth seat

By-election winner Richard Foord’s constituency gets chopped up with the new Parliamentary boundaries. So as the Midweek Herald reports:

Liberal Democrat MP Richard Foord has announced he will stand for the new ‘Honiton & Sidmouth’ constituency at the next election, promising to make local health services his main focus if re-elected.

His current constituency, ‘Tiverton & Honiton’, is being abolished at the next election, with Tiverton and Bampton becoming part of the new ‘Tiverton & Minehead’ constituency.

Most of the current constituency, roughly 60 per cent, will become part of the new ‘Honiton & Sidmouth’ constituency, uniting Honiton, Cullompton, Seaton, Axminster and surrounding villages with Sidmouth, West Hill and Ottery St Mary.

Richard Foord himself adds:
