Theresa Villiers has been reselected by the Conservatives to fight to retain her seat at the next general election.

The Chipping Barnet MP – whose current campaigns include opposing the mayor of London’s Ultra Low Emissions Zone – thanked members of her local Conservative Association who ‘voted overwhelmingly’ to reselect her as her party’s candidate for the contest, which is expected to take place in 2024. 

She said: “I feel honoured to be chosen by the Chipping Barnet Conservative Association to fight a sixth general election. I will be campaigning energetically in the constituency, taking the Conservative message to the doorstep.

“I will champion the issues people care about in Barnet including halving inflation and growing the economy; cutting NHS waiting lists; getting more police on our streets; protecting our local environment and opposing overdevelopment; and stopping ULEZ expansion.”

She added: “I want to thank the Chipping Barnet Conservative Association for placing its trust in me once again. It is almost exactly 20 years since they first chose me as their candidate, and ever since then I have strived to be the best and hardest working candidate and MP.”

The Labour Party selected its candidate for Chipping Barnet, Dan Tomlinson in November 2022.
