Association says thanks for hard work

Bath Conservative Association has thanked all its members, campaigners and supporters for the efforts made to re-elect a Conservative Member of Parliament for Bath.

Deputy Chairman, Simon Spalding, said that despite almost identical numbers of Bathonians voting Conservative as in 2015, the total was not enough in the face of a united campaign to support the Lib Dems.

"This is a hugely disappinting result, not least for Ben Howlett and his young team.  Ben and his staff have worked tirelessly over the past two years, and we thank them for their efforts for Bath and for the Conservative cause."
