East Yorkshire MP, Sir Greg Knight, has revealed who he is backing in the final contest to replace Boris Johnson as Prime Minister.
Sir Greg said ‘It is now for the Conservative Party membership as a whole to decide who they want to lead the Party and, in the final round, I am supporting Rishi Sunak to be our next Prime Minister. ‘
Sir Greg says: ‘Rishi has steered our economy through bleak times and I believe will be a responsible and effective PM.
‘I worked closely with him when I was piloting my Parking (Code of Practice) Bill through the House of Commons. That Bill is now an Act. Rishi was extremely supportive of my changes to the law to help motorists and was always willing to listen to new ideas.’
‘I believe he has the intellectual grasp and integrity to be a great Prime Minister and that is why I am giving him my support.’
