Theresa May’s decision to call a snap election caught everybody off guard – including those MPs who’d intended the 2015-2020 Parliament to be their last.

Although particular attention is being paid to the ‘exodus’ of Labour MPs, there are also Conservatives and Liberal Democrats taking the opportunity to step aside.

This will obviously have implications for the election, especially if the seat is a marginal. Below is our running total, by party, and their constituency.

Labour:

  • Alan Johnson – Hull West and Hessle
  • Andy Burnham – Leigh
  • Gisela Stuart – Birmingham Edgbaston
  • Jim Dowd – Lewisham West and Penge
  • Tom Blenkinsop – Middlesborough South and East Cleveland
  • Rob Marris – Wolverhampton South West
  • Pat Glass – North West Durham
  • Iain Wright – Hartlepool
  • Andrew Smith – Oxford East
  • Fiona MacTaggart – Slough
  • Dave Anderson – Blaydon
  • Michael Dugher – Barnsley East
  • Graham Allen – Nottingham North

Conservatives:

  • Angela Watkinson – Hornchurch and Upminster
  • George Osborne – Tatton
  • Simon Burns – Chelmsford
  • Gerald Howarth – Aldershot
  • Eric Pickles – Brentwood and Ongar
  • Alan Haselhurst – Saffron Walden
  • Andrew Tyrie – Chichester
  • Peter Lilley – Hitchen & Harpenden
  • Edward Garnier – Harborough
  • David Macintosh – Northampton South
