PM thanks MP Grieve

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - OPINION -

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.”
