Victoria Prentis confirmed as Conservative candidate for 2019 General Election

North Oxfordshire Conservative Association is pleased to confirm that Victoria Prentis will be the Conservative candidate for the North Oxfordshire constituency in the General Election on 12 December.

Victoria, who was first elected as our Member of Parliament in 2015, said:

"It has been a privilege to represent the people of North Oxfordshire in Westminster for the past four years. As someone who was born at the Horton and brought up locally, I am delighted to have been re-adopted as the Conservative candidate for my home constituency and I will be working hard to seek re-election on 12 December.

This is the third time in four years that I have had to ask the residents of North Oxfordshire for their support. Since the referendum, I have repeatedly voted to leave the EU in an orderly way. Regrettably, not all MPs have agreed with me, and electing a new Parliament is now the only way to get Brexit done and bring the country together.

While we must deliver on the referendum result, I am determined to focus on local priorities: from fighting for the reinstatement of obstetric-led maternity services and securing investment to make our Horton fit for the future to improving access to GPs’ surgeries in Bicester and delivering a significant per-pupil funding increase for 18 schools across the constituency. I will also be a strong voice for our villages, whose character makes our constituency such a beautiful place in which to live, and for our growing towns of Banbury and Bicester, which continue to attract fresh investment and jobs.

I look forward to the campaign and I will be out across the constituency in the coming weeks. If you would like to join my campaign team or need to get in touch, please email me:"
