Congratulations to OE James Heappey who was re-elected as the Member of Parliament for Wells last week and has been appointed Minister for Defence Procurement by Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
James said: “In a changing world, with so many threats to our national security, I am honoured to be joining the ministerial team at the Ministry of Defence.
“I know that so many in our local community support our Armed Forces and I look forward to now taking up this important role, ensuring our Armed Forces are properly equipped for the mission we ask them to do on our nation’s behalf.
“Constituents can be assured that my highest priority will always be the service of our local community and so whilst I am now a voice for Somerset in Government, I also remain focused on delivering the plan you elected me to implement last week.”
