NEWS STORY : Nigel Adams Resigns from the House of Commons


Nigel Adams, the Conservative MP for Selby and Ainsty, has announced that he is standing down as an MP with immediate effect. Adams is the third MP to have announced their resignation over recent days, following the announcements from Nadine Dorries and Boris Johnson. Adams posted on Twitter:

“Yesterday, Selby Conservatives selected an excellent new parliamentary candidate. I’ve today informed the chief whip that I will be standing down as a Member of Parliament with immediate effect. It has been an honour to represent the area where I was raised, educated and I want to thank my constituents for their wonderful support since 2010.”

A source at Conservative Central Office said that they had been given no prior warning about the announcement. Adams has held the constituency since 2010 and secured a majority of 20,137 at the 2019 General Election.
