Andrew Bowie – 2021 Statement on Resignation over Paterson Scandal

The statement made by Andrew Bowie, the Conservative MP for West Aberdeenshire and Kincardine, on 10 November 2021.

I was honoured to serve as Vice Chair of the Conservative & Unionist party. However, over the last few months, I have come to the decision that I need to take a step back from the demands of the role to focus on representing my constituents.

I formally asked the party yesterday if I could step back from my position and I will remain in post until they have found a successor.
