General Election Candidate Letter Reply - Jo Churchill

Below is the reply recieved from Jo Churchill, Conservative PPC (Bury St Edmunds), to the letter to the candidates in the constituencies in or around Thetford Forest Forest issued by the Friends of Thetford Forest (FoTF):

Thank you for your email and I am sorry I have not got back to you before now. I would very much like to review this post election in order that I can give you a full response.

To give you a summary I would like to point out that I have been brought up all my life in a rural community, I understand the importance of ensuring that our countryside, rural life and the businesses and communities within the rural community are looked after. Food and farming is our biggest manufacturing sector, employing one in eight people. It’s a vital part of our economy and that’s why the Government has worked hard to support all those who live and work in rural areas as part of our long-term economic plan. The Conservative Party believes in strong, vibrant communities at the heart of a living, working countryside and I would work hard to ensure that this happens.

I look forward to speaking with you postelection, should I be successful.

Kind regards

Jo Churchill

Parliamentary Candidate for Bury St Edmunds
