Epb_4Derek Tipp’s final question refers to local candidates.  Whereas only a third of December’s ConservativeHome.com respondents favoured a 50/50 A-list of candidates – as prioritised by David Cameron, 71% supported more local candidates in the most marginal seats. 

Would you support the right of all constituencies to be able, if they wish, to consider a local candidate for selection as their PPC, provided that candidate was approved by the Candidates Committee?

JOHN FLACK: Yes.

JEREMY MIDDLETON:
Yes, I regularly argue for the right of all constituencies to be able to consider a local candidate for selection as their PPC provided the candidate was approved by the Candidates Committee.

SIMON MORT:
Yes.  I feel very strongly about the value of local candidates whether on the PL or not and am on record as expressing this view very forcibly.

TOBY VINTCENT:
Yes, provided that the candidate also satisfied the criteria for the nature of the seat – Majority Conservative/Target/Majority Opposition Held, etc.

EMMA PIDDING:
I support the right for all constituencies to be able, if they wish, to consider a local candidate for selection as their PPC, provided that the candidate is approved by the Candidates Committee.
