As first disclosed in OnTheWight’s conversation with Isle of Wight MP Bob Seely last week, the remaining two candidates for the leadership of the Conservative Party will be visiting the Isle of Wight.
Both Jeremy Hunt and Boris Johnson will be speaking at the same event on the 27 June at an as yet undisclosed location. They will separately address the audience, then take questions.
Tickets will only be made available to paid up members of the Conservative Party. Priority will be given to those who have been members of the Isle of Wight Conservative Association for three months or more (and therefore entitled to vote in the leadership contest).
Tickets are priced at £15 each, including a light buffett and cakes.
Bob told OnTheWight,
“I’m delighted that both Boris and Jeremy are visiting the Island this Thursday.
“One of the things that I promised when Islanders elected me as their Member of Parliament was that I would make sure that the Island had a higher profile in Whitehall and that Islanders would be listened to by our national leaders.
“The Island is the first constituency in the UK to host a dedicated event for both the candidates in their quest to be the next Prime Minister.”
