Statement From Christopher Pincher
"I have said already that I will not stand at the next General Election. However, following the Independent Expert Panel's decision I wanted to talk to my office team and family.
I do not want my constituents to be put to further uncertainty, and so in consequence I have made arrangements to resign and leave the Commons.
Tamworth is a wonderful place and it has been an honour to represent its people. I shall make no further comment at this time."
