Robin Walker speaks in Dartford, sixty years after Peter Walker stood for Parliament


In October 1959, Peter Walker stood for Parliament for the second time in Dartford, having been the candidate in the constituency since 1955.  He was narrowly defeated by 1,276 votes and went on to become the MP for Worcester and a Secretary of State for a number of departments including Environment, Trade and Industry, and Energy.

His son Robin was elected to represent Worcester in 2010 and will be coming to Dartford on Friday 25th October 2019 where he will be speaking at the Dartford Conservative Club.  This will coincide with the sixtieth anniversary of his father standing for Parliament in Dartford.  He voted in favour of a referendum on the UK's membership of the EU and subsequently supported Remain in the referendum.  Afterwards, he became a Minister at the Department for Exiting the European Union, serving in post until 2019.  He was a Minister at DExEU for longer than any other person and acquired an extensive, first-hand experience of the ongoing saga of the UK's exit from the EU.

He is now a Minister at the Scotland and Northern Ireland Offices.

The event includes a buffet dinner and begins at 7:30pm.

Tickets cost £12.50.
