PM thanks MP Grieve
AN MP has been thanked for his ‘loyal and steadfast’ support in his time in cabinet by the Prime Minister.
Beaconsfield MP Dominic Grieve, who was elected as an MP in 1997, was dismissed from his role as Attorney General last week after four years in the position.
David Cameron wrote to Mr Grieve following his decision to thank him for the past nine years as Attorney General.
Mr Cameron said in the 15 years Mr Grieve was on the front bench covering ‘significant legal portfolios’ he had made an ‘outstanding contribution’.
“No more so than over the past four years in government as Attorney General, where I have valued your frank and clear legal advice,” he added.
Mr Grieve, speaking to the Advertiser on what the change meant for HS2, he added: “It will be my priority to get the best deal for my local constituents.
“I was always able to work for the constituents but now I am in more of a position to speak on this.”
