You are invited to the next meeting of the Herefordshire Conservative Business Forum, when our speaker will be Stuart Anderson, MP.
Stuart grew up and went to school in Hereford and joined the army shortly after leaving school at 16. Eight months into his service, and just days before his eighteenth birthday, he suffered a high-velocity gunshot wound to the foot and was told that his foot and possibly his lower leg would have to be amputated.
The weeks of surgery went better than expected and he undertook an extensive rehabilitation programme which enabled him to return to active service within a year in Northern Ireland. He went on to complete eight years in the Royal Green Jackets (now the Rifles).
After leaving the Forces, Stuart worked in the defence and security sectors, operating in over 50 locations around the globe. For over 15 years, he served his community and different charities, from fundraising for underprivileged children to serving at homeless shelters.
Stuart joined the Conservative Party in 2016 and in October the following year he was elected to Herefordshire Council in a by-election in Kings Acre Ward, a seat never held before by the Conservatives.
He was elected as Member of Parliament for Wolverhampton South West at the 2019 General Election. He is a member of the Defence Select Committee, the UK delegation to the NATO Parliamentary Assembly, and the Committee for Arms Export Control. Stuart is also co-chair of the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Reserves and Cadets and Vice-Chair of the APPGs on the Armed Forces Covenant and Black Country Economy.
Stuart is married with five children.
