Spalding lunch hears from one of Britain's youngest MPs, Ben Bradley




One of Britain's youngest MPs, Ben Bradley, was the guest speaker at a lunch organised by South Holland and the Deepings Conservative Women's Organisation (CWO).

Ben was aged 27 in 2017 when he became the first Conservative MP ever elected in Mansfield, Nottinghamshire, taking the seat from Labour's Sir Alan Meale, who had held it since 1987.

Ben, who is a past Conservative Party vice-chairman, gave a brief talk about his role as an MP before taking questions.

The vote of thanks was given by South Holland and The Deepings MP John Hayes.

Ben was welcomed to the lunch at The Woodlands Hotel, Spalding, by South Holland and The Deepings CWO chairman, Margaret Wilson.

She enjoyed listening to Ben's answers to questions.

"Obviously Brexit came up," said Margaret. "You could not have a meeting without Brexit, could you?"

Margaret has belonged to the CWO for 30 to 40 years and says: "Basically it is to help women get into politics."
