Member of Parliament for the Bosworth Constituency
**UPDATE 06th November 2019**
Parliament has been dissolved and, after more than 32 years representing the Bosworth constituency in the House of Commons, I am no longer an MP.
It has been a privilege to represent local people for such a long period of time in Parliament but I am not seeking re-election.
I wish Dr Luke Evans, the Conservative Candidate for Bosworth, great success in the General Election on 12 December and for the future.
(Former Member of Parliament for Bosworth: June 1987 – November 2019)
Former soldier David Tredinnick was first elected MP for Bosworth in 1987 and was re-elected in 1992, 1997, 2001, 2005, 2010, 2015 and he increased his majority to over 18,000 at the 2017 General Election.
During his time in Parliament he has led many campaigns locally, such as against excessive housing development in Hinckley & Bosworth, working to retain vital community amenities such as post offices, pubs and local shops, better road safety and to stop unnecessary travellers' sites. David has also been active on the issue of law and order, especially antisocial behaviour concerns. He has also supported schools and colleges throughout the constituency as well as many local charities and businesses. Between 1997 and 2001, as the then Government was intent on joining the Euro, David took a prominent role in campaigning for Britain to keep the Pound.
David's main area of interest is health and during the last Parliament he was a member of both the House of Commons Health Committee and the Science and Technology Committee having been elected to these positions by fellow MPs. He has been Chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Integrated Healthcare since 2002 (formerly Treasurer 1989-2002). His other special interests include reform in Europe, defence, environment and rural affairs, law and order and homeland security.
David was born in 1950, and educated at Eton College, Mons Officer Cadet School, St John's College, Oxford (M.Litt), and the Graduate School of Business at Cape Town University (MBA). He has one daughter and one son.
