Five people are standing for the Tiverton and Honiton constituency in the General Election on Thursday, May 7...
Neil Parish, the Conservative candidate has represented the constituency at Parliament for the past five years, and was originally a farmer.

“If I am re-elected I intend to continue my campaigns for superfast broadband for every home in Devon and for improvements to the A30/A303 – which I have raised in both the House of Commons and in meetings with ministers.
“I support a greater role for Devon’s community hospitals, such as the Honiton Community Hospital. I’ve also raised objections to the temporary closure of in-patient beds at Axminster Hospital with the Secretary of State to ensure that both Seaton and Axminster have the beds they need.
“I’ve done my best as an MP to represent you. If I’m re-elected I will carry on to do the same.”
