Also re-elected unopposed were:

  • Cheryl Gillan and Charles Walker as Vice-Chairmen.
  • Geoffrey Clifton-Brown as Treasurer.
  • And Nigel Evans and Bob Blackman as joint secretaries.

Blackman was elected in 2010; the others from previous intakes.  The ’22 top team has a slightly right-of-party-centre feel.  The Parliamentary Party has just emerged from the bruising double of a referendum campaign and a leadership election.  There is evidently no appetite for any further action that might be divisive.
