Scott Mann re-elected as MP for North Cornwall

Scott Mann has been re-elected as Member of Parliament for North Cornwall after a General Election was held on Thursday, 8 June.

Having already served as MP for the area between May 2015 and May 2017, Scott was re-selected as the Conservative Candidate and spent five weeks touring North Cornwall, speaking to local residents and businesses.

Scott was subsequently re-elected with 23,835 votes - up by 4,146 since his first election in 2015 - and his 50.7% vote share delivered a majority of 7,200 - up by 579 since 2015. Turnout was 50,944 (74%) - up by 2.2% since the 2015 General Election.

Commenting on his re-election, Scott Mann said:

"I would like to say a massive thank you to all who voted for me yesterday. Being re-elected as your MP with an increased majority is a privilege and I am very grateful for your confidence in my ability to serve the North Cornwall constituency.

"I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all my staff, local party members, those of you who displayed posters, signs and offered words of support all the way. I'd also like to thank the tribe of volunteers, who have worked tirelessly on my behalf since the general election was first announced. Their enthusiasm and humour were ever present throughout the campaigning and are a wonderful example of local people wanting to help deliver real, positive change.

"The election result will undoubtedly pose challenges and democracy has shown that it can sometimes be unpredictable. However, democracy is what matters and my desire to represent each and every one of you in North Cornwall is undiminished."

Like North Cornwall, the other five Cornish constituencies also saw the re-election of Conservative MPs.
