You are invited to the next meeting of the Herefordshire Conservative Business Forum at the Harewood End Inn, when our speaker will be Nigel Huddleston MP.

Nigel is the Member of Parliament for Mid Worcestershire having first been elected in the May 2015 General Election. He lives in the constituency with his wife and children, who attend local schools.

He was born and raised in Lincolnshire and attended the Robert Pattinson Comprehensive School in North Hykeham before going on to study politics and economics at Oxford University. He moved to London to work for Arthur Andersen as a management consultant before going on to study for a Master’s in Business Administration (MBA) at the Andersen School at UCLA in the USA. He married his American wife, Melissa, in 1999 and they moved back to the UK in 2006 following the birth of their son. Nigel worked for Deloitte before joining Google as Industry Head of Travel in 2011.

In the 2010 General Election he contested the Luton South seat and achieved a 4.6% swing from Labour to the Conservatives. He was a Councillor with St Albans District Council between 2011 and 2014 - representing the Wheathampstead Ward.

He was selected as the Conservative Party parliamentary candidate for Mid Worcestershire in November 2013 in an Open Primary (a public meeting at which both Conservative and non-Conservative supporters attended and voted), and won the seat with a majority of 20,532 in the May 2015 General Election.

Nigel contested the same seat again in the June 2017 General Election and increased his majority to 23,326. Following this election, he was appointed as the Parliamentary Private Secretary (PPS) to Ministers in the Department for Digital, Culture Media and Sport (DCMS). In January 2018 he was appointed to a new role and became PPS to the Secretary of State at DCMS.

He has a particular interest in tourism and technology, and sat on the Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee between 2015 and 2017.
