North Somerset Tories back Dr Fox

TORIES in North Somerset have given their backing to the district’s MP, Dr Liam Fox, in the wake of days of accusations and allegations made against him.

The North Somerset Conservatives Association, which is based in Nailsea, has released a statement saying it continues to fully support Dr Fox, whose actions as Defence Secretary are currently being investigated after revelations about his working relationship with close friend, Adam Werrity.

A statement from the association said: “Liam Fox continues to serve his constituency well. But as he has said himself, serious mistakes were made but he has apologised for these and believes there was no wrong doing, and he continues to have the full support of the North Somerset Conservatives Association.”
