Greg has revealed who he is backing as the next Prime Minister.
Sir Greg said ‘I am supporting fellow Yorkshire MP Rishi Sunak to be our next Prime Minister. ‘
Greg adds: ‘Rishi has already steered our economy through some bleak times as Chancellor and with his valuable experience at the Treasury, I believe he will be an effective PM.
‘He also represents a huge farming constituency, similar to East Yorkshire, so he is well aware of the various rural issues which still need addressing.
‘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 plans to change the law to help motorists and was willing to listen to new ideas.’
‘As Chancellor his creativity during the pandemic protected the jobs, livelihoods and wellbeing of many people.
‘I believe he has the intellectual grasp and political drive to be a great Prime Minister and that is why I am giving my support to Rishi.’
