Hon Member For Stockton South

EDM number 239 in 1989-90, proposed by David Clelland on 19/12/1989.

That this House notes that the honourable Member for Stockton South, in condemning as carpetbagging the selection of the Labour candidate for Hartlepool thereby condemns himself, having shown no previous interest in the North East or Stockton prior to his own Parliamentary candidature; concludes that the predominance of southerners in the diminutive northern Tory group of honourable Members demonstrates a lack of interest in the people of the north by northern Conservatives; and anticipates the further diminution of the Northern Parliamentary Group following the next general election.

This motion has been signed by a total of 16 MPs.
