Member of Parliament for the Bosworth Constituency
Former soldier David Tredinnick was first elected MP for Bosworth in 1987 and was re-elected in 1992, 1997, 2001, 2005, 2010 and he more than doubled his majority at the 2015 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.
