Successful Election for Teddy Hall MPs

19 Jun 2017

Houses of Parliament

Teddy Hall had another successful night at the General Election as all sitting MPs who graduated from the Hall were returned by their constituents.

Mark Field (1984, Jurisprudence) kept hold of his Cities of London and Westminster seat for the Conservative Party with a reduced majority of 3,148. Other Conservative Aularians returned include David Gauke (1990, Jurisprudence) in South West Hertfordshire, who has subsequently been appointed Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, and Mel Stride (1981, PPE) who has been appointed Paymaster General and Financial Secretary to the Treasury.

Labour Aularians who retained their seats include Nick Thomas-Symonds (1998, PPE), who increased his majority in Torfaen and has since taken up the position of Shadow Minister of State for Security, as well as keeping his pre-election position of Shadow Solicitor General. He is joined by colleague John Spellar (1966, PPE) who also increased his majority in Warley, and Shadow Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union Sir Keir Starmer (1985, BCL). After a controversial night that saw the seat as one of the last to declare, Paul Farrelly (1981, PPE) narrowly kept hold of Newcastle-under-Lyme with a majority of just 30.

Congratulations to all our Aularians who have been elected to Parliament. We wish them all the very best for the important task of representing their constituents.
